An Encounter With a Red-tailed Hawk

Dear Diary:

Outside of the Old Stone House in Park Slope on a recent Saturday, I saw a red-tailed hawk fly in with a freshly killed squirrel clenched in its claws. The squirrel was bloody and its eyes were closed.

People stopped and stared. I felt for a moment that there was something sad in the expression on the dead squirrel’s face, but then lost the feeling.

I snapped a few shots and continued on as the hawk commenced to dig in.
