Up in the Air

I’m smiling not because I visited the top of three NYC bridges (Verrazano-Narrows, Marine Parkway, Throgs Neck) and saw six peregrine falcon chicks in one day.

No, I’m smiling because I survived being repeatedly dive-bombed by the adult peregrine parents, who were rather annoyed at our presence. Fortunately, nobody got hurt and we tried not to overstay our welcome. Video to come.

Some days, I really love my day job.
