Harlem Raptors

My early morning forays to track the kestrels and red-tails that reside in my neighborhood have produced only the occasional sighting. When the weather changed, I decided to try my luck in the late afternoon. After searching their favorite perches, I found the kestrel pair in the northern part of their territory.

The male then took off and made a dive on a surpised starling!

I then tracked him to some new perches, opposite the 30th Pct.

I also noticed that scads of starlings were on watch duty. They seemed to be paying attention to something other than the kestrels.

In St. Nicholas Park, I found the reason why.

For a minute, I thought I might be on the menu.

But then he was off...

and made a run at some pigeons.

Happy New Year to all!
