Central Park red-tails - January 24, 2012

I saw two red-tailed hawks as I was leaving the southeast corner of Central Park during a lunch-time walk last week. A friend who knows the Central Park hawks pretty well told me I was probably not photographing Pale Male in Central Park all this time but most likely Pale Male Jr. 

I had devoted I think three or four posts to a couple of red-tails I saw flying around the Plaza which at first I thought may be Pale Male. But my friend's argument was sound; Pale Male Jr. and his mate are known to fly around the Plaza Hotel and the southeast entrance of the park. I'll take her word for it! 



















The other hawk follows and lands below the other on the same building:










If you look closely you can see both hawks:
