Another resident hawk?

I just received the following great photo from Bob Holden. The photograph of the Red-tailed Hawk with a pigeon was taken in Juniper Valley Park, Queens. There is a large cemetery near the park. I'll have to explore this area over the winter as it is potentially another Red-tailed Hawk nesting site.

I just saw a Red-Tailed Hawk kill a squirrel in Juniper Valley Park today (2/20/10) on the Dry Harbor Road side of the park. Pretty wild.
