Red-tailed Hawks Take Over The Globe!

McCarren Park, Brooklyn

I went to McCarren Park in Brooklyn today to follow up a report sent to Rob Jett from a friend who plays baseball in the park.

Within minutes of arriving, I found this hawk on lights for the baseball field.  It made a hunting attempt across the street.  (The 36 acre park is divided up into strips with north/south streets going through the park.)

It ended on a low branch perfect for taking portraits.

It then flew off and I lost track of it.
