I've been chasing hawks whenever I can. There are at least two first-year hawks in the park (see Bandshell Babies), and one second- or third-year hawk (see Hunting at Bethesda Fountain). On October 26 I followed a young first-year red-tailed hawk at Bethesda Fountain, and November 2 I watched the hawk (the same one, I believe) near Laupot Bridge. Of course, I made a video!
And I've also been looking for Pale Male. I saw him two evenings behind the Metropolitan Museum of Art, on Oct. 29 and Nov. 1. So, another video!
Enjoy the two videos!
These are the still shots of the young first-year hawk on Oct. 26. Following that is a gallery from Nov. 2. I am pretty sure it's the same hawk both days, but there have been two babies with those strong eyebrows hanging out in the park recently.
