This red tail hawk window is a memory from my time in NY.
I was walking down a small dirt path in Prospect Park, when a huge red tail hawk swooped over my head carrying a beefy rat in its talons. It was a victory for nature in that bustling city. It was a relief, exciting. It was a reminder that nature is there, tucked in the treetops of the city park. Wild and powerful.
So, for years I had that image in my head and finally was able to build it. So, that little animal in the hawks talons is a rat, though some have said an armadillo. And I’m fine with that too.
