The young hawk who was returned to the park a week ago, is working her way up Museum Mile on Fifth Avenue. Having started at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, she was in front of the Neue Galerie New York yesterday and today she was in front of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum. She's either a cultured hawk or she enjoys the rodents the food vendors attract!
I spotted her crossing the East Drive in the early afternoon and saw her land in a tree above the Fifth Avenue sidewalk that's adjacent to park. She stayed in this tree for over five hours, although she changed perches and direction a few times. It was a hot afternoon, and the tree had lots of shade and a nice breeze.
