Tour boat raptor spotting - August 30th, 2013

I took an out of town guest out onto a Manhattan Island tour boat cruise today, putting in some great sightseeing.

Since I have to snap away any time I see a raptor, I couldn't help but photograph an Osprey and a mature Red-tailed Hawk seen during the ride.

Osprey soaring low above the Hudson River:








Red-tailed Hawk flying past a History Channel billboard located on the Harlem River, south Bronx area (Hawk seen just to the right of the H):





That was about it as far as photos of raptors went. I am pretty sure I saw another Red-tailed Hawk further up the Harlem River (not a rare sight of course) but I was too far away to photograph it and only had my smaller lens mounted on my camera at the time.
