Here's a couple distant shots of Pale Male's nest. It's just under the roof above the center window. Nobody was home but I still peered into a avid fan's spotting scope. Clearly I'll need a longer time commitment to sit and wait for someone to make an appearance. I'll be back! I'm glad that there's the committed folks that keep up the watch. There's some real jerks out there. I hear through the grapevine that this year's clutch of eggs may again be unsuccessful. I'm still keeping my fingers crossed.
The cherry trees in full bloom action. I still can't get enough of that. It's amazing how well tulips do when they are not eaten by deer. They look so perfect that I wonder if it's fake.
Here's Han Christian Anderson's duck friend...he was far more interesting.
These couple of buildings symbolize to me authentic NYC buildings. I can just picture people hanging out on the fire escapes, yelling out the windows to people passing by. These buildings are just tall enough for the residents to observe and care what goes on in the streets below, which results in less local crime. Unfortunately, super tall skyscraper luxury condos are taking over the streets. It's a bit depressing to see this happening and I don't even live there. Someone living on the 20th floor in a luxury condo isn't going to care what's going on in the street below.
