Friday's Foto

The Sharp-shinned Hawk is a small raptor that frequently overwinters in our city parks. No larger than a Blue Jay, these predators have learned that birdfeeders are like fastfood restaurant drive-up windows; an easy place to pick up a quick meal of songbird. This individual above Green-Wood Cemetery's Dell Water wasn't fast enough and all the birds vanished into the underbrush in the blink of an eye.
