Not Central Park -- but a central image for NYC hawkwatchers

Happy Spring!

Hello Marie,

A photographer friend of mine (Joe Woolhead) who works for the World Trade Center redevelopment organization sent me these stunning photos of a young Red Tail who’s been using the site as his/her hunting grounds (rats are apparently plentiful on construction sites). How fitting a symbol of renewal a NYC Red Tail is!
