Hawk shenanigans in Tompkins Square Park today

Per Goggla today, a hawk was pulling these kinds of fly-by stunts… "Hey, did you just feel a breeze?"



Meanwhile, the Hawkman always rings twice…



Check out many more of Goggla's photos here.

I would have helped the squirrel out in this situation. That hawk is turning into a bully!

Nice, Anonymous, nice! The Hawk & squirrel shot is fucking amazing! If I didn't know Googla's reputation, I would think photoshop.

"Oh, my squirrel has arrived from Amazon!"

Anon. 7:32 - until hawks get their own biscuit boutiques and pig-in-blanket parlors, they have to find their own food; no delivery to TSP. He's only doing what "Nature, red in tooth and claw" intended!

Goggla, these are truly splendid.

at this time of the year, the RTHawks are starting to look for nesting sites and mates and good food supplies.

We need to start a save the squirrels from the hawk movement. The squirrels were here first! They need to band together and beat the crap out of that bird!

Love the second pic. That squirrel is all like: "Oh shit."

Someone's gotta have a squirrel's furry little back. It isn't easy for them in the park between having to fight off all those damn rats and now this big ass bird.

FYI - no squirrels were harmed in the making of this post. :)

And, the squirrels totally bully the hawks. That's why they can't nest in the park. Team Squirrel need not worry.

Judging by some of the posts, it is clear the squirrels have hired a lobbyist to defend them against the hawk. But where did they get the money?
