Weekend hawk update

I'm developing a real soft spot for this juvenile red-tailed hawk in Tompkins Square. I've watched it in the park for the last several weeks and am enjoying its antics.

Saturday was a beautiful day for flying...

Sunday was a bit lazier - more resting than flying (or killing).  This hawk seems to have a bothersome right foot, which it often pulls up while sitting, as seen here.

My tongue, let me show you it...

Whose tree?  MY TREE!

Meanwhile, watching the action from the tree next door...

And then there was this...a hawk spirit?
