Court Square in Springfield is still home to hawks

It may be at the doorstep of home ice for the Springfield Falcons hockey franchise, but Springfield’s Court Square also appears to be home to a pair of Red-tailed Hawks.

Last year I photographed a hawk at Court Square in late February. I’ve heard consistent reports of hawks hanging around the park and buildings there over the past year.

Today, Springfield photographer and photo blogger Lorrin Baker sent me an email saying one of the hawks was perched on the rooster-shaped weather vane high atop the Old First Church. It took me a while to finally get out of the office and head over there, but the hawk was still hanging around when I arrived.

A few shots:
