Fort Tryon

I hadn't been to Fort Tryon this season, so I thought it would be worth a look.  I ended up getting drenched in a thunderstorm, but I did see one Red-tailed Hawk on a building bordering the park at 196th and Broadway.  It was a second year hawk, with its tail feathers in molt.  It had a few old stripped brown tail feathers and a few new red ones.
