Lots of busyness then having to fight a cold has been keeping me tied up so here are photos from Tuesday the 26th (the last time in several days I could get out and about and photograph in any meaningful way).
Red-tailed Hawk from the 37th floor of a building overlooking Central Park:
I'm pretty sure it was the Plaza Male because it had at first perched on The Pierre then Sherry-Netherland Hotels.
A Red-tail adult and juvenile in a tiff:
My next stop was the bank of Central Park's pond.
Black-crowned Night Heron preening, tucked in a tree:
Great Blue Heron:
Black-crowned Night Heron with a pal. I hope the other bird is its mate and they have a baby or two this Spring:
Juvenile Red-tailed Hawk above the lawn between The Pond and 5th Avenue:
An adult Red-tail started to chase it:
Juvenile in the middle, adult Red-tails on either side:
Close-up of the juvenile:
The adults were Plaza Male and Octavia.
The three Hawks flew northward and out of sight.
Back to the pair of Black-crowned Night Herons:
Ornery Canada Goose chasing others around The Pond:
Rushing to a new target:
Two Hawks on the Sherry-Netherland Hotel:
One flew off, flying north:
