Welcome to 2013!

The year is starting off right with more hawk-on-squirrel action in Tompkins Square Park...

Tompkins Square Park
The squirrel won't back down, even with an acorn in its mouth.

Here is some video of the encounter:

And, now, everyone please stand for the Pledge of Allegiance!

Oh, say can you see...! 

See more photos of the hawk here.



  1. omg. I didn't realize there were hawks in tompkin!

  2. Great shots! That last one is a classic, especially with your caption leading into it!

  3. Oh, yes, there are a few! This is a great time of year to see them as the leaves are off the trees. They've been so active lately, I bet you'll see at least one if you venture up to the park in mid-afternoon. :)

  4. Thanks, Marty! For a really great shot of the hawk and flag, check out Gamma Blog:
