Immature Red-tailed Hawk Hunting in the Ramble Again

5th Avenue Hawks

I was walking near Cedar Hill, when I saw a Red-tailed hawk fly north at an incredible pace, and then make a perfect right angle to turn and proceed towards the back of the Met.  I walked north, and found both Pale Male and Lola. I heard a wonderful sound from them.  The circled quite low in the area between the Obelisk and the museum.  (It was quite windy and I wonder if this was a protected area.)

Within minutes I lost them, and headed south towards the model boat pond.  I ran into Lincoln Karim who reported that the pair had copulated three times earlier in the day.

Here are some pictures from the Northwestern shore of the model boat pond around 4:30.
