2/17, Chill WInd

On a cold and gusty Sunday afternoon, Highbridge George was flying up and down the Harlem River shoreline, from the old nest site near Dyckman St. to the Washington Bridge at 181st St.

Highbridge George

He hardly seemed to perch anywhere for longer than 20 seconds. Eventually it seemed he had given up on the increasingly shaded area in favor of the sunlit hilltop around GW High. But as sunset approached and I was making my exit, I discovered him settled and quietly digesting a meal on a tree branch overlooking the Highbridge Park path.
