Red-tailed Hawk on Riverside Drive
A red-tailed hawk perched high above Riverside Drive overlooking the Hudson. What view the bird must have with the river to the west,
and Riverside Church, usually lost in a mass of leaves, visible through bare branches to the north.
The hawk calmly took in its surroundings.
After a while, it was joined in the tree by two smaller birds.
The hawk ignored them at first. (The little birds are on branches to the right.)
But when it turned to take a look, the little fellows flew off.
And the hawk remained.
