This hawk stuff is absolutely incredible.I just hope he/she is ok. (seems to be)I've just never heard of a NYC hawk being so brazen and exposed as this one seems to be. (sitting around on park benches) I do know a (fair?) number of hawks in the city die eating poisoned rats and pigeons.Has anybody seen it flying-off with any of the food? (as in taking it to a mate or brood.)
I heard a rumor that he's now a tasting consultant for the new menu at the Beagle.
can someone please direct this beautiful bird to the n.e. corner of bowery and delancey! there is an abundance of well fed pesky pigeons awaiting!!
the headshot with the bloody beak and pigeon feather is gorgeous.
I had a red tailed hawk in my neighborhood last spring which exhibited similar brazen behavior. I called 311 and the city's animal control was sent to observe.
You should really hold a contest to name it. In honor of its favorite dining spot off Crusty Row and the neighborhood's punky past, I nominate "Mo." As in "Mo Hawk." Geddit?
you called 311 about a suspicious hawk??? Is there NO END to the things you busybodies will stick your nose in? Don't you have jobs???
How about Evie Hawk for the name? I do like EV Hawk but if it's a girl, I say Evie Hawk or EVe Hawk. If it's a boy, Evan Hawk??-Roger P
Just spent about half an hour watching Evie Hawk eat a rat in the park today. Lots of other viewers around. Nice little hawk-watching community we've started here in the EV!It called out to another smaller hawk who soon flew to its tree. Evie Hawk said something to it and then the smaller one took off towards Avenue C/D. Exciting!-Roger P
T.E.V.B., I was thinking of Ethan Hawke but isn't it better to keep the EV bit in the name? Hence, EVie or EVan for our little EV Hawk? :)-Roger P
I love Evie Hawk, that's a perfect name! And no wonder everyone is standing around watching, it beats paying 13 bucks to sit through a crappy movie. And Evie was in free 3-D!
I looked up the meanings of the names Evie and Evan. How apropos!Evie: "life, animal"Evan: "Young Warrior"-RP
I vote for Evie Hawk. Thanks for looking up the meanings, RP!
I like your ideas, though we will need to run this by CB3. First, I will appoint a Blue Ribbon Task Force. I'd also like to hold several public hearings on the matter. My goal is to select a name by April 2019.
Hi EV Grieve, just got up to speed on the East Village hawk. Thanks for the update! I totally get your humor about CB3 - perfect summation (and I'm not even that informed about them - better acquainted with CB2 which does move on things, except when they don't). Oh and that is true as other commenter said - NYC Parks Dept puts down rodenticide which kills or sickens rats that the hawks then eat. Some juvenile hawks at Riverside Park were suspected to have died from poisoning when the parent fed them a poisoned rat. There have been other instances as well.It's nice to track the hawk's progress, such as it is. That is some crowd that gathered!Cathryn
