Photos: Red Tailed Hawk Finds Lunch in Glen Rock

Check out the great photos a resident snapped on Friday.

Bears aren't the only fearsome animals to stop by Glen Rock of late. On Friday, borough resident Vasu Chari spotted this red tailed hawk devouring a squirrel on his front lawn. The hawk snacked for about an hour and Chari was able to get within six feet to take the great photos.

"It’s nice that our town attracts such wonderful wildlife," he said.

Good luck with the cleanup. One took out a rabbit in our backyard a few days after Sandy while we were still without power. It was not a pretty sight!

I have a pair of hawk attractors hanging from a tree in my back yard, one filled with shelled peanuts, the other filled with safflower seeds. The handful of times a hawk or possibly some other raptor has hit a bird eating seed from the attractors, all that has remained has been a small pile of feathers. We have observed the hawk with its prey a couple of times. RB, I am amazed you were able to get within six (6) feet - for us, the merest hint of motion through a window is enough for the hawk to take wing so fast that its disappearance is like magic.
