Raptors in the park on Saturday
Great Horned Owl
Wait a minute! A Harris's Hawk in Central Park???
Murray Head, who took the four photos above, explains:
The raptors were on view on Saturday as part of Central Park's On a Wing Family Festival. They were brought to Belvedere Castle by the Theodore Roosevelt Sanctuary... whose speaker gave an educational talk about these wonderful birds.
The resident grackles were not amused.
