For the past couple of years when I've walked in Central Park around the Metropolitan Museum of Art I've seen a bird that I thought was a hawk or falcon either on the museum or one of the trees. Today I saw a man who was filming the bird and I asked him if he knew what it was. He told me it was a male Red-tailed hawk which is very interesting. When I was young the only birds in the park were pigeons and sparrows and a few ducks and swans but nowadays there is a greater variety. I wonder what kind of bird will show up next.
The other interesting thing is that stillrose
, one of the most fascinating Spander writers, has converted one of her unfinished Spander fanfics into a novel titled Desert Ice
under the nom de plume of Rose Maefair. I haven't read it as I don't have a kindle but I will try to do so (I can borrow a friend's kindle) once I can stop being so outraged by what is going on in Washington DC.
