The Hawk has landed
11/8/2007 He’s back!
An Hoboken police officer let the dispatcher know that if anyone called in about a “large group” gathering in the projects, it’s because the Hoboken Hawk is back, and swooping down to attempt to catch another bird or squirrel (those pesky squirrels).
One unit is remaining on the scene to make sure “no little kids gets hurt”.
The failing Jersey City newspaper is now featuring the Hoboken Hawk in the paper. They’ve even gone as far as to ask people what the name should be. I guess they read Hoboken411 for their story ideas.
What we previously assumed was an Eagle, was actually a Hawk as readers finally concluded. Whoops!
But here are some shots that Hoboken411 reader Keith took of the Hawk after he ate a rabbit on 5th and Sinatra Drive last week! (The Hawk, not Keith.)
He took them with his Fuji FinePix S5100 (that model was replaced with the FinePix S5200 – a bargain at $239!) Very nice shots, Keith!
Should we name this new Hoboken specimen? I like “Hank”, but what do you think (its) name should be?
This afternoon in Church Square Park, a bird that isn’t normally in Hoboken paid a visit.
This Hawk was seen on this branch around 2:30.
Will post more, but there’s a building collapse at 1014 Garden Street right now I have to attend to!!
