NYC’s Hawk-a-Day Club
I’m a charter member of NYC’s Hawk-a-Day Club. Anyone can join, and the entrance requirements are, well, not too tough. Basically, all you have to do is spend some time outside, preferably in or near a park, and look up. Because these days, the city’s raptors, particularly its burgeoning population of red-tailed hawks, are pretty easy to spot.
Over the course of the past six weeks or so, I’ve regularly – even, yes, daily – seen red-tails…
in Riverside Park.
On the back of the Cathedral of St John the Divine.
In Central Park.
On a high-rise near Morningside Park.
On another high rise on Broadway between 109th and 110th Streets – on the same spot where I recently watched a pair of hawks copulate.
On a tree near the statue of General Franz Sigel at 106th and Riverside.
On a water tower, looking over 110th Street.
