Red Tail Hawks Like Park Slope, Prospect Heights Real Estate

It would appear that two of the Prospect Park red-tail hawks are also hanging around Grand Army Plaza and, uh, doing some food shopping. There are several comments in a new thread on Brooklynian about the hawks. They have been seen on Plaza Street near Butler Street and St. John's. Another poster writes, "I've seen a pair of red-tail hawks flying about nearly every time I go into Prospect Park via Grand Army entrance. On occasion I've seen the male and female hunting in tandem over Prospect Heights. I am confident you're looking at the same one(s) that I see each week." Someone else posted a photo of one of the hawks, apparently after it got a squirrel (which can't be made out in the photo.) Back in December, the Brooklyn Paper noted a hawk living in McCarren Park in Williamsburg. We've seen the hawks in Prospect park and they are impressive.

There was also a red tail hawk hunting in Coffey Park in Red Hook last year. I haven't seen it in awhile so I don't know if it's still there, but it was pretty cool seeing it!

I've seen one of the hawks make two pigeon kills on the roof of the downstairs extension outside my kitchen window. The next door neighbor's have a coup on the roof. What a mess of blood and feathers.
This is on 8th Street in Gowanus btw.
