The Boathouse Row Hawk

Along the Schuylkill River in Philadelphia 
is a popular path used for biking and running. 
It passes right along Boathouse Row and the Art Museum. 

It is an urban area 
so a wildlife encounter 
kind or surprised me! 

According to the local residents, 
this fellow is a regular. 
He hunts for critters in their gardens. 

He didn't catch anything 
while I watched, 
but it wasn't for lack of trying! 

More photos here.
