Raptor Wednesday

American Kestrel male way up there looking for lunch.Ditto this Merlin. Even higher, for this bird is near the top of the reputed tallest tree in Green-Wood, a tuliptree (yellow poplar). Same day as the kestrels above and below.This is the local #BrooklynKestrels male.He has prey.The pair cache prey on this roof, under the solar panels.Female is stretching. There were three food transfers this day: male to female.In the last week, this pair has been very noisy. Up until Monday, the female was going off like an alarm. Last couple of days, not nearly as much.

On Sunday, these two, two more hunting Floyd Bennett’s grasslands, and one perched over the Belt Parkway made for a five American Kestrel day.
