NYC Red Tailed Hawk

This flew right at me as I sat at my desk uptown on Manhattan Avenue this morning, after spotting it perched on a fire escape across the courtyard. I had just grabbed my camera and low and behold it flew in for a closer look. Cool.

This isn't Pale Male since it is a juvenile Red-tailed Hawk born this year. You can tell by the banded tail and the 2 toned wing.

Where did you see this hawk?

Thanks for the ID on the hawk. I photographed it on the Upper West Side.
