Friday's Foto

Sometimes referred to as the "chickenhawk", the Red-tailed Hawk has become a regular sight in urban settings. They are the most common hawk in North American and can be found in nearly all habitats throughout North America. In New York City they nest everywhere from trees in parks and cemeteries to building ledges. In Brooklyn, resident pairs have nested in Brooklyn Botanic Gardens, Prospect Park, Green-Wood Cemetery and Fort Greene Park. This year a pair is raising two offspring at the edge of the Japanese Garden in the Brooklyn Botanic Garden.
