Raptor at Jamaica Pond

Was walking around Jamaica Pond this afternoon, when I spotted this bird glide down to a perch on one of the trees on the Parkman Drive side.

Hawk with squirrel at Jamaica Pond

Late yesterday afternoon, this hawk sat in a tree on the Jamaica Pond shore along Parkman Drive. Oh, look, it has some dinner. After about 30 seconds of me taking its photo, it had enough and flew off, with dinner, right in front of a runner on the path.

Mike Ball reports on an interlude on the cobblestones outside the Quincy Market building today:

Not-at-all-shy hawk went for lunch at Boston's Quincy Market. It started right on the pigeon, thrilling and disgusting the tourists and locals. This young female brought the pigeon down with a thump (apparently dead before hitting the paving stones) and looked at 50 or so of us like, "You'd better not try to take my meal!"

Oh, you want a look? But of course: Read more.
