Urban Hawks vs. Rural Hawks

Re: Bakeman Astounded:

I work on the Cornell University campus in Ithaca, NY--a somewhat rural area--, and we have seen at least one red-tailed hawk perched at various sites on campus watching humans at close range. A co-worker recently remarked that he was startled to look up a few feet into a tree, and be practically face to face with a red-tail as he (the co-worker) left his car. Perhaps NY red-tails are less shy than Blakeman's.
