Garden hawk continued...

On the sidewalk.No marauding crows.
Time to sit in peace and pose for astonished audience.
What's that? Is it an eagle? Is it hurt? What's it doing here?
Just stand back, way back and be quiet.
Two hours. Still sitting and looking around.

At this point the workers came from WBF and rescued hawk. One worker approached slowly from front to distract hawk while gal approached slowly from rear and placed big soft towel over hawk. Hawk then gently picked up and placed in safe carrying box. Both rescuers wore heavy long leather gloves to avoid talon/beak damage.  Off to rehab.. hopefully check out, feed and then release. One gorgeous youngster. Possibly born in West 71st street fire escape nest this past June.
