Over the weekend, Yojimbot at The Origin of Species went on his annual Harlem Hawk Walk to check in on the avian community uptown. He has many wonderful pictures (some are in the gallery above), video, and observations here; Bloomingdale Village also has a great write-up.

As for the count, he saw three juvenile redtailed hawks, five adult redtailed hawks, an adult peregrine, a juvenile Cooper's hawk and an adult kestrel. Plus two very adorable monk parakeets! And if you're interested in checking out some birds this winter, the Parks Department offers these birding events--you can learn a little about bird watching and then be able to observe on your own.
