Raptor Wednesday

These are the infernal train yard lights my neighbors complain about. About three blocks away from the vast subway yard, they require blackout curtains to stop the glow. (We face a different direction, thankfully.) This light tower with a male American Kestrel atop it was on a distant part of the yard. Along with the very high fence, such lights are part of the elaborate and costly security to keep the subway graffiti-free.

Elsewhere, near one of the nests I know about.

    And, of course, they are “essential” lights and can’t be shut down during migration…….
