Friday's Foto

This juvenile Red-tailed Hawk perched at the edge of Green-Wood Cemetery's Dell Water spent much of her morning relentlessly pursuing a Mallard breakfast. The four ducks in the water below seemed unconcerned with the young hawk's frequent, imprecise strikes. She eventually gave up. I can't say if this is one of Big Mama and Junior's offspring or if it is one of the dozens seen migrating through the area that decided to stop off to rest and eat.
