2/17, Riverside Juvie Red-Tail

No sign of red-tails when I made a pass through Riverside in the 100s or 110s late Monday afternoon. But Tuesday, right as I turned the corner on to Riverside Drive at sunset, a red-tail flew into the top of a tree at 112th St., overlooking the statue of Samuel Tilden.

It was hard to get a good viewing angle of the bird because of all the branches. This pic from almost straight below was the best of a bad lot. It looks like the juvenile red-tail who's been hanging about the area had had a late supper and was going to bed with a full crop.
