Hawks and Beavers on Bronck’s river

1_5_09 HAwk near Boston Road Bridge

While we were searching for signs of the beaver near the Boston Road Bridge in the Bronx Zoo, this Red Tail Hawk swooped down in search of something under the leaf litter. Standing a good 18 inches tall, this adult never did find its intended prey. The hawks are year round residents and the winter months offer a great viewing opportunity.

By the way, the beaver is still quite active, as this little sample proves.
