In this post are photos I took Friday afternoon while visiting the Southeastern corner of Central Park.
I hadn't seen either of the Plaza Hawks on the Plaza Hotel at first so I went to The Pond to check on the birds that live near there.
The Great Blue Heron that has been spotted in recent weeks was there:
One of the Hawks flew into view:
Flying past The Plaza:
He flew into a tree behind me:
I then noticed that his mate was now sitting on the side of The Plaza:
The male was searching for prey:
The female hopped off The Plaza:
The female came in for a landing on the east-facing side of The Plaza:
The male flew to another tree:
The male then leapt after prey I could not see:
He quickly turned around and went back into the tree:
It was time to soar:
He flew too far for me to walk to so I headed back to work. I checked The Plaza for the female but I didn't find her. Later on while at work I looked out a coworker's window and saw one of the Hawks soaring nicely above Grand Army Plaza.
