Friday's Foto

New York City's resident Red-tailed Hawks have begun their spring courtship with the females accepting or rejecting their mate's choice of nest locations. Listen for pairs as they make their familiar down-slurred "kee-eeeee-arr" call. Watch for them circling and talon grabbing in mock aggression. There has been as many as four confirmed nesting pairs in Brooklyn, but I wouldn't be surprised if there were many more.
