Tweet of the Day, NYPD Vs. Red-Tailed Hawk edition. (Nothing bad)

I’m just glad that they’re back. I remember seeing birds of prey in Manhattan during the 1990s, but… well. They kind of went away for a while.

  1. Come and see the violence inherent in the system. Help! Help! I’m being repressed! 😉

  2. Red-tailed hawks are open field raptors; it’s very weird to see one in an urban environment. Can’t vouch for other birds of prey, but red-tails have continued in stable, healthy numbers for the past several decades. I always see a family or two in the Princeton area. And during the 90’s and 00’s, I’d annually drive up I-95 from Philadelphia to New Hampshire to visit relatives. Every year, I’d count hawks along the way, and every year there would be between a dozen and twenty that were visible from the interstate.

  3. Red-tails are doing extremely well out here. We have several pairs the property. The windmills have largely wiped out the golden eagles, and the hawks are making hay while the sun shines.
