Portraits of a Grounded Hawk

While we wait for Newshawk, the juvenile red-tailed hawk who injured his wing crashing into the glass-walled atrium at New York Times headquarters a few weeks ago, to continue his recovery, we thought we’d share with you these drawings. They were done by Kaye Blegvad, an illustrator and designer based in London who happened to be visiting The Times that day.

“I found myself very moved watching that poor hawk fall so dramatically after hitting the building,” she wrote in an e-mail. “And I liked how so many people dropped what they were doing and rushed to see if it was O.K.”

Newshawk’s caretakers on Long Island tell us he continues to improve and is expected to make a full recovery.
