Still very little to report about hawk activity along Morningside Drive. No sightings at all on Monday. Close to an hour on Tuesday had almost no result, until just before 7:00, a hawk dove out of the hospital area and flew over Morningside Park.
And continue out over Harlem, descending all the way. I lost track of it around 118th St. and St. Nick, but the direction of flight made me think it could be headed for Marcus Garvey Park.
Friday I made my way over to Garvey Park for a look-see. Nice view of the cathedral from the top of the park.
But no luck seeing anything else of interest. About a quarter to seven I started making my exit, and finally spotted a red-tail, perched atop a 20-story apt. building at 118th St. and Fifth Ave. Lousy light though, so I wasn't able to figure out whether it was immature or an adult. It stayed up there for at least ten minutes as I made my way sough along Fifth Ave.
Before heading back to Morningside Heights, I decided to check in on the owlwatchers in Central Park's North Woods. I arrived to find that the female screech owl was already standing up, but barely had her eyes open. A minute later she seemed a bit more awake.
Then began to look around more seriously.
And a few minutes later was ready to exit her roost.
Hmm, nice talons.
As she began her treetop peregrination, her mate showed up, and the two fluttered off to the east.
