Shower scene

While one of the Tompkins Square hawk fledglings was showering over at the swimming pool, its sibling decided to frolic in the sprinkler behind the park offices.

Let's play!

Note the big stick in the photos above - it made the perfect hawk toy.

After playing with the stick for several minutes, the hawk settled in for a thorough shower.
