Some of you readers were wondering if the large raptor photographed on Carroll Street by Max Kelly and posted here yesterday was a Kestrel or a Red-Tailed Hawk. Dr.Robert DeCandido,PHD, an expert who is currently doing a survey on nesting kestrels in New York City, was kind enough to weigh in. He confirms that this is indeed a Red-Tailed Hawk.
Very cool. Thanks for the info, Dr. "Birding Bob" DeCandido.
