A Red-shouldered Hawk flew past my apartment window this morning, wheeling around over Sunset Park to give me a good view of telltale tail and wing "windows."
Cooper's Hawk and Kestrel sightings this a.m. too. Both species also seen in Green-Wood in the afternoon. Cooper's failed to make a meal of female Kingfisher over the Crescent Water. That persistent Great Blue Heron not sighted. Pied-billed Grebe on Valley Water among the Canada Geese. Single Common Raven low overhead, softly grumbling. Shovelers who were on Sylvan Water Saturday gone today. Some very agitated White-breasted Nuthatches alerted me to a rather large nocturnal hunter hiding in a conifer... what a great day it was.
