1/12, Hunting in the Ravine

Late on a very dreary Saturday afternoon, a young red-tail was hunting in Central Park's Ravine.

As I watched over the course of about 40 minutes, he worked his way from a tree near the waterfall west to another overlooking the Huddlestone Arch. Then off to a tree alongside the Pool, and then as sunset arrived, out of the park to the rooftop right above the 103rd St. subway entrance.

At last sight, he was flying west along 103rd, perhaps on his way to look for a rat near one of the project dumpsters.
