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.
