Part 9 of the Hawky New Year! series features the visiting first-year red-tailed hawks ... and Pale Male and Octavia hanging out together near the Metropolitan Museum of Art. It covers three days at the end of January: the 27th, 28th and 29th.
Part 9 has young hawks looking handsome, Pale Male and Octavia staring at each other across a crowded park, and a young hawk eating a squirrel (at the end, for those who'd rather not view that).
The photos for the three days vary in quality, but I chose ones I found interesting. There is a photo of a Cooper's hawk (Jan. 28), although there was no video, so this hawk is not included in the Hawky New Year! film.
These photos show three days of the first-year hawks.
Pale Male on Jan. 28. Although I did take some photos of Octavia across the road, they were not very good and so I'm not including them here.
