      We’ve seen a hawk spending the night in the “island” on Riverside Drive between 98 and 99, but he seems to have moved on.

      Thank you for these impressive photos. More respect for nature would make a big difference in helping Americans and our politicians take climate change seriously. It threatens these beautiful birds just as it threatens us.

      The second photo reminded me of a picture an old boss had in his office, though it was of an eagle, it would be apropos for the hawk and it said: “But I am smiling”.
