Fwd: Some Prospect and Green-Wood notes
To: prosbird Sent: Sun, Jan 19, 2014 1:15 pm Subject: Some Prospect and Green-Wood notes
Among the regulars, Prospect Park offered up a male Kingfisher, and a Merlin, both near the Esdale Bridge around mid-day today. Two Red-tails in the Lullwater, one ripping up a rat. Gory. Two sleeping raccoons visible on this cold day.
Yesterday in Green-wood, a banded Red-tailed Hawk was repeatedly patrolling the area where the Red-headed WP has been, although it looked like the several squirrels were its target.
