Life Among the Tompkins Square Park Trees

Today there were two Red Tailed hawks (Buteo Jamaicensis ) in Tompkins Square Park . One of them was the one whose pictures were posted here two days ago and the other one is pictured above . Both hawks were having difficulties with being harried by smaller birds such as Blue Jays ,Crows ,Starlings and a single but persistant Kestral ( Falco Sparverius ) . Even the Grey Squirrels ( Sciuris Carolenensis ) were busy harrasing our poor feathered visitor . This hawk finally left the park for a less confrontational situation somewhere east of TSP.
