Stinker #1 aka Whitey, about to catch a pigeon on Central Park's east side.

It was a very skillful hunt in every way.

He flew into a nearby tree with his catch.

But he was not able to hold on to it and the pigeon flew away not looking very hurt.

All the images today are Stinker #1.

Even his father misses on many occassions, so for a 3 month old baby it was quite an accomplishment.

Sitting on his father's favorite perch.
