the scene of the crime.

From Yesterdays New York Times.

Fifth Avenue and Carroll Street, Brooklyn, 4 P.M.

Nothing like looking out your window to see a hawk ripping the sinew out of a bird on top of your air conditioner. Still photo below.

Below is the Google Street view of the air condition that Hawk was sitting on.

I walked a couple of blocks and took a better photo of the scene of the crime

Speaking of life and death, the building across the street is a fancy restaurant. Not long ago it was a funeral home.


  1. A pair of Merlin Falcons came to nest in our neighborhood a few years ago. One morning I opened the door to find our deck covered in wings and legs and heads of songbirds - the Merlins were using our trees as their dining area. I screamed.

  2. Meh, they have to eat too. It made me laugh because this country woman has never seen a hawk that up close and personal. All I ever see is a pile of feathers. The perpetrator is long gone.

  3. We often see hawks in these things called trees. Sometimes in the sky. We usually miss them during their meals.


You do not have to be nice!
