The second baby hawk from Houston Street fledged sometime between Monday night (June 9th) and Tuesday morning. As of 10:00PM June 11th the last of three babies is still on the nest.Read what happened to the second fledgling...


The last Houston Street baby remaining.



My poor little friend, you are designed to live with trees and grass and rivers, sun and rain and good clean food...



but all too suddenly we've thrown some steep hurdles before you...



now you have to cope with cars and electricity and fumes and tainted food...



and you have to cope with even more than those trying things; you have also to put up with selfishness, greed, ignorance and intolerance.



But don't look so sad my little pal, because somewhere in the sky there is a bright, happy star looking out for you.

Please excuse me for the statement I made last Sunday
"In a neighborhood already plagued with negativity the one budding morsel of positiveness was rudely snatched away without the least bit of caring."
It was thoughtless of me to make such a statement. In fact this neighborhood is not plagued with negativity. There is hardly a neighborhood outside of this one where people wholeheartedly invite me into their houses and bring cold drinks and fruit for me after seeing me baking in the sun from out of their windows. This is the neighborhood where passing city busses would stop and their drivers run out to catch a glance of the babies on the nest through my camera. I also find that people are very genuine and more sincere not to mention more respectful than other places where I visit.
