Images from Central Park, 12-10-10

Here are a few images from Central Park this past Friday. Overall a good day for Raptor watching, I managed to spot 3 Red-tailed Hawks, 2 juvenile Coopers Hawks and a Sharp-shinned hawk.

 Mature (female?) RTH
 I thought she was looking for her next meal
 Instead, she was looking to chase this immature RTH (male?) out of her winter feeding territory
 He quickly retreated North, not to be seen again
 Another Juvenile RTH, possibly female judging by its size

 Juvenile Coopers Hawk

 Mature Sharp-shinned Hawk stalking passerines in the Ramble
