Hawk on fire escape

During my Saturday school lesson this morning, my kids started freaking out about a bird they saw on a fire escape across the street. At first, they thought it was an owl. After a closer look, we discovered it was a hawk. This picture doesn't do it justice but the bird was beautiful and big! What a bizarre place for a hawk to hang out - on a Harlem fire escape.

If you look close, you can see it on the far left of the top floor fire escape.

It could be Mordecai from the Royal Tenenbaums. They filmed the house scenes in Harlem and at some point during the shooting, someone stole Mordecai and held him for ransom. They didn't have time to deal with it, so they used a different falcon for the later scenes. That's why Richie talks about him having more white feathers than before.

Geeky Wes Anderson trivia at your service. :)
