Pale Male dines on...what?

Ben Cacace reports

Pale Male (Red-tailed Hawk) gliding onto Turtle Pond lawn to pick
up a meal under the trees just east of the blind.

Turtle Pond! Right below the Shakespeare Garden where the Central Park non-maternal Mothers gather most nights to observe nocturnal Lepidoptera. Maybe that's why we're not getting any big moths at our black light these days. [I hope you know I'm kidding. Red-tailed Hawks don't eat moths,]
