Prospect Park Hawk Makes a Killing
That dark shaped object on the far right is the hawk. From the safe distance of the foot path, you could actually hear what sounded like bones crunching as the pigeon's corpse was being torn into shreds. During the 15 minutes that I watched the hawk eat his lunch, he never seemed distracted in the least by the small group of children and their caretakers who had stopped to behold the curious sight.
Which reminds me...Anyone see the White Squirrel around the Harmony Playground lately? Last time I saw him was last Fall. Let's hope there was no fowl play surrounding his disappearance. Maybe he moved back to the Midwest.
