Tompkins Square hawk eats squirrel

Squirrel challenges hawk

The resident red-tailed hawk of Tompkins Square Park ate a rat on a branch over the center lawn Sunday afternoon. No word on Peta’s reaction yet. She’s a regular in the East Village, New York City park and locals sometimes call her Dominatrix. (They deduced her gender because female hawks are bigger). A brave gray squirrel came by to taunt the hawk, knowing well he was safe from hawk attack while up in the same tree.
