Raptor Wednesday

A familiar silhouette. Cooper’s Hawks do now breed in Brooklyn, but I haven’t seen one since the spring.
Last week, a local or an early migrant passing through went after one of three Red-tails in the air. Two of these RTs were youngsters, the other an adult, so they were probably the pine nest family of the cemetery’s flatlands.
And, on the other side of the cemetery, where one young Red-tail fledged, this could be the bird.
Meanwhile, seeing this male American Kestrel atop this Beech pretty frequently.
