Stormin' Norman!

This new hawk is full of surprises. After seeing no sign of hawk all day, I finally caught the male on the scaffolding, above the nest!

I angled around,

just in time to see him dive off directly at a starling.

Easily missing, he circled around

and landed on the scaffolding next to the nest!
He then leapt home.

Later that day, I saw a Norman fly up to a nearby antenna with a pigeon he had just caught.

He flew around and displayed the kill, but Isolde did not go out to meet him. Instead, he flew north, beyond 125th St., parading his kill. I lost sight of him headed way uptown.

St. Bloggy!
