Fun on the Ground at Tompkins Square Park

The three red-tailed hawk fledglings at Tompkins Square Park have provided many hours of joy as they play on the ground and have family dinner with Dora and Christo, their parents. I spent June 15, 18, 19 and 23 at the park and took lots of video and photos.

Laura Goggin has a terrific blog about the Tompkins Square hawks. She takes some incredible photos.

There are two videos, both set to Mozart, to enjoy.

Here are some photos from the trips downtown. I like the first two — you can see Dora in the first, and her kid in the second. Note the family resemblance! I've posted more photos on the Red-Tailed Hawks: Tompkins Square Park page.
