Bird of Prey Christian Saint (Red Tail Hawk at St. John the Divine)


This slideshow requires JavaScript.

A pair of red tail hawks have nested and are raising their young, carried by  St. Andrew at the back of St. John the Divine off of Morningside Drive. High above the park, it’s a great place from which to go out hunting for rats and pigeons. I like the combination of humility and predation, the combination of flesh, stone, and Christian religion on a green, late spring day. For more on urban hawk ecology, check out this blog:
