the Madison Square Park hawk has passed away

Sad news has hit the NoMad area and Madison Square Park. Reports indicate that the notorious red-tailed hawk that was seen often perched in the park has passed away.

While unconfirmed, it appears as though the hawk died from eating a poisoned rat. In addition to rats, the hawk was known to eat pigeons and squirrels. For more information, the Madison Square Park Conservancy has an article about the hawk from last summer.
