1/12, Central Park, North

A stroll into the north end of Central Park late Sunday afternoon revealed two red-tailed hawks with minimal effort. A juvenile was hunting by the Pool, and while it was lurking there, an adult circled over the Great Hill a few times.

The juvie progressively changed perches before circling about over the Ravine and then disappearing towards Lasker Rink. While the juvie was leaving, the adult appeared again, circled about ten or twelves times in the sunset light before it too exited, apparently to go perch atop the Cardinal Cooke building.
