West side

Cold day. The last thing I expected to see was a buttterfly. Very strange. A Thanksgiving butterfly?

Central Park West near 70th street, screaming blue jays . What's going on? Search. Oh joy, an immature redtail hawk. Maybe it will spend the winter in this area. Lots of food available. Lots of tall trees for perching. There were two squirrels taunting the hawk overhead, but not too close.




Lots of sparrows bit-picking on the ground, and then into my vision came this gorgeous redbelly woodpecker. I hope this sweet bird doesn't become lunch at some point. The hawk noticed it.
