Tompkins Square 2022 hawk season winds down

As the hawk breeding season comes to a close, below are some highlights of the Tompkins Square Park red-tail fledglings from this summer. 

Christo, Amelia and their surviving fledgling are still around, but we will see less of the fledgling as it expands its explorations and eventually heads off to learn the life of a hawk. Christo and Amelia are permanent residents, so they can be seen around the neighborhood, but this is generally a quiet time of year for them. Fall bird migration has already begun, so we can look forward to seeing more (and different) birds over the next several weeks as they pass through the city on their way south.

This fledgling put on a thrilling show for a crowd in Tompkins Square.
