A hawk’s Christmas feast is not one to envy

My doorman excitedly told me late this afternoon that there was a hawk perched on a tree diagonally across from our building on the Upper West Side.

I had to have a look, and now you can see the best that I could manage with my little camera.

The raptor was dining on a pigeon, the lower half of which had fallen to the ground beneath the tree limb.

What made this afternoon different from all other afternoons was that the (white-tailed?) hawk had changed trees from the next one down the street, according to a nearby resident.  Apparently, it has been hanging around the neighborhood for a couple of months.

As for my dinner, you can be sure it won’t be any kind of fowl.  Not tonight.
