In today's red-tailed hawk action... Christo and Dora's 2017 offspring,
nicknamed Manhattan (or 10, for being their 10th hawklet), captured a rat. (Not sure is this is her first solo grab.)
As Steven, who shared these photos noted, she then crashed into a Park fence ...
Momentarily stunned, Manhattan stayed in this position for several minutes, then flew off again with the rat.
Some hawklets get ecstatic about being able to fly. I was buzzed by one that went between me and the bush that was four feet away. One raised arm, and I would have been telling you about how I collected some hawk feathers instead of how I was buzzed. Of course, when that hawk landed in a tree, I swear it had a self-satisfied grin all over it's face!
