Here's the picture that I couldn't post earlier today, taken by my friend Lyn earlier this year, along with the email she sent about what happened. She'd said I could post it & I'd been meaning to for a while, seemed to be a good fit with my first Pale Male & Lola spring update.
Early this morning the neighborhood handy-man rang my buzzer and told me to be quiet but to look out my right bedroom window. On my windowsill was a huge hawk, chowing down on a pigeon that it had just caught. I got one picture of it on my sill, but then it flew off to a neighbor's fire escape. As feathers were flying, it wasn't long before many of the neighbors were out, looking up and chatting.
