These photos were of the Southeastern Central Park Red-tailed Hawk from Friday, October 5th. I took the photos while visiting a coworker in a building overlooking the Southeastern corner of Central Park. We were on the 37th floor.
As I was talking with my friend, the Hawk I normally view and photograph while I'm on the ground was soaring in tight circles a couple of floors' distance below us. It was circling right in front of us! After about the sixth or seventh circle, I took out my camera and started photographing. Luckily, my coworker knows all about my Hawk obsession so I was spared any teasing or good-natured ribbing.
The Hawk ascended to higher floors while in the shadow of our building:
After several minutes, the Hawk disappeared when flying further south.
