Checking in with East Village red-tailed hawks, Christo and Amelia

As we are already half-way through November, it's time to check in with local East Village red-tailed hawks, Christo and Amelia. Both of them appear to be doing well, and I've been seeing them daily around Tompkins Square and the neighborhood. Below are some random photos of them.

Monday morning, I found Amelia perched on the cross of St Nicholas of Myra church with the moon setting behind her in the west. She kept her back turned, but managed to give me one portrait before the moon dropped out of frame.

She's such a stunning hawk. I really love every encounter with her.
