Flaco the owl a NYC gangsta - update V

Flaco the owl continues to find new fans. The biggest tourist draw in NYC draws a crowd in heavy parkas, toting tripods, thermal binoculars, and cameras.
Official attempts to capture Flaco (Skinny) have ended. Offical's dead rats and recorded owl calls didn't impress Flaco enough. They, and his legions of fans, will be keeping an eye out for any signs of distress from Flaco.
Native NY crows have learned to keep their distance from Flaco and not fuk with him.
For two weeks, an owl that escaped from New York's Central Park Zoo has flown from treetop to treetop, eluding capture and amassing fans worried about its ability to survive alone in the big city.
Would Flaco, a majestic Eurasian eagle-owl, starve because he hadn't developed the ability to hunt while in captivity?

Flaco has made the rounds of Upper Manhattan but hasn't strayed too far from the park. Officials attempted various recapture schemes.
The answer was a resounding nope: Flaco has a huge smorgasbord of rats in the park and has been stuffing himself. He has disgourged a river of bones and rat fur attesting to his hunting skills.
