Riverside and Central Park Red-tailed Hawks

After exploring more of the damage in the North Woods this afternoon, I ventured over to Riverside Park followed by the middle of Central Park.

I found two hawks.  One was on top of the Civil War Soldiers and Sailors Monument at 89th and Riverside Drive.  This is likely the Adult Hawk (young, light eyed) Lincoln Karim had seen earlier in the week.  (The hawk flew off before I got around the monument, so I didn't get a chance to see its tail and confirm it was an adult.)

After visiting Riverside Park, I went back to Central Park and saw either Pale Male or Lola in their favorite late afternoon tree on the Great Lawn.  The lawn was closed due to the wet weather we've been having, so I didn't get to see the hawk up close and get a positive I.D.
