Red-Tailed Hawk Spotted in Washington Square Park

Rumor has it a red-tailed hawk - and possibly a mate - have once again taken up residence in Washington Square Park.  One passerby said he spotted a hawk hovering yesterday near the playground, where it appeared to be pining after a child holding a paper airplane. 

Last January, park-goers sighted a red-tailed hawk flying and nesting throughout the Greenwich Village park, which was - and still is - under construction.  Photographer Brian Dube, who lives on the North side of the park, was stunned to spot a young red-tailed hawk finishing up its pigeon lunch on top of the air conditioner outside his apartment (see photo). Let us know if you've seen the hawk.
