The other day.....I was in NYC...Harlem. I was taking my 1 1/2 year old grandson out for a walk at Riverside Park which is just on 'this' side (as opposed to 'that side') of the GW bridge. On the way, we were a bit startled by a rather large bird. It just flew from the ground to the rod iron fence and let us admire it's red tail. Just 'down a-ways' (decipher that), was another red tail, just sitting in a tree. Just two hawks sitting in a tree...they weren't kissing though.
As evident, we could darn near touch their beak, and they seemed not to bother. I suppose in NYC, if they aren't used to people by now, they are going to be pretty stressed out. I felt like we were in a zoo.
We just sat and watched......then walked on.
