Raptor Wednesday

A not uncommon sight from the apartment windows this winter. Although the last few weeks have seen scant evidence of this male American Kestrel. But here he was March 8 as the Staten Island Ferry, Big Orange to those of us on the moraine, goes by.
Then, last Thursday, March 11, the pair! American Kestrels together on the chimney pot. Later in the morning, some mating was seen up here after the female ate what looked like a rodent limb. Another season of local #BrooklynKestrels!!!!!

Immature Cooper’s being screamed at by Blue Jays.
Red-tailed Hawk with inner eyelids closed.
Red-tailed Hawk intercepting…, hey, is that an F-35, which should probably be called an F-36,000 because just one of them costs $36,000 an hour to run and the 30 year lifespan of the “system” is expected to cost one trillion dollars. But tell us how there isn’t enough money for Medicare for all.
