Another AMNH walk, another icy adventure. We decided to head up to the reservoir and see what we could find.
But first, on my way up to meet the group, I got to watch 3 red-tailed hawks hunting! It was actually a bit unclear what their relationship was. I started watching one, and then suddenly there was another one, I thought the second one was chasing the first one away from its building. But then there were three and they were all sort of flying together. Oh, who can tell. It all went so fast, and it was hard to see through the trees, but it was awesome!
The gang's all here! A wood duck, a coot, a mallard, and a gull.
