  1. I’d say you are correct, sir! There are a few that live in the neighborhood. Big, beautiful birds!

    Isn’t this the hawk that resides in the tower of the City Hall? To my knowledge he had an affinity
    for pigeons and you could see discarded parts on Dale Ave. daily.

    • I heard that the bird that lives at City Hall is a peregrine falcon. And yes, pigeons for lunch.

      No, the bird on City Hall is a peregrine falcon. There have been two , but this I have only seen one. They are mostly black, with a lovely black and white abdomen. They live there only autumn through spring. They leave to have offspring.

    It is a Red Tailed Hawk. There are a pair that are always on Thatcher Road near Good Harbor. I usually see them in the morning.
