The day began with a red tail on the Towers
and the female kestrel out in the open.
As I looked right, I caught the large female red tail on a fire escape!
Just then she alit,
sailed past the barbed wire!
And then swung around
and flew right past!
Beating her wings in fast downward strokes
she powers over the buildings cornice,
out across 145th Street
and into the Park,
where she scattered a flock of pigeons.
After leaving the Park, she was shadowed by a gull!
From there, I found the juvy RTH stalking pigeons by the Meer!
A quick bus ride on, I saw one of the 74th St. hawks plucking nesting material off a neighbor's balcony!
And finally, high above the affairs of men, the two GM peregrines perched on top of Citicorp!
A closer look...
They took turns diving off with the utmost of confidence, one flew south
and one flew back to the GM!
One is molting in the primaries!
