Falcons in NYC.

Check out this piece in Smithsonian magazine about Peregrine falcons in New York City: The World's Fastest Animal Takes New York. It was written by lovely bird lady Meera Subramanian, one of my Blue Mountain Center mates during my October residency.

  2. No kidding? Wow, I'll have to keep my eyes open for that!
