Hawk In The Hood!

hawk on grand street (1)

A Lo-Down reader sent us this great shot of a recent hawk siting on Grand Street near the East River Co-ops. We’ve heard a few reports about seeing them around the neighborhood again after a bit of a break.  You can send your photos to us at: tips@thelodownny.com.

Red-tailed Hawk on the L.E.S. - photo by Rich Caplan

Thanks to photographer and L.E.S. resident Rich Caplan, who sent us this photo of a red-tailed hawk coming in for a landing on a building vent at 208 E. Broadway.  Could the Pale Male family be venturing downtown for some new lodgings?
