3/8, Highbridge Park, North

I barely stepped out of the 1-Train stop at Dyckman St. on Saturday afternoon before spotting a red-tailed hawk. Highbridge George was lurking about the rooftops of the Dyckman Houses on the north side of the street.

Red-Tailed Hawk (6387)

He spent five minutes casing the area around the subway station, perhaps looking for an unwary pigeon.

And then he was soaring away, heading south for somewhere near the George Washington High ballfield.

No sign of Martha around the nest or anywhere else in the Swindler Cove area.
