Spring has Sprung, in the East Village and Overhead

East Village, NYC
Photo by myself at East Ninth Street and Second Avenue, in the East Village.

At long last, we had a nice sunny day on Saturday.

The sidewalks were crowded with people in this eclectic neighborhood, walking about and brunching.


Speaking of Spring, it's common knowledge that there are nesting red-tailed hawks in New York City. Bird watchers and nature enthusiasts have long spoken about Pale Male and Lola in Central Park.

Now there is a webcam focused on another nesting pair in the Village. Just outside an office window at New York University, Violet and Bobby have three white eggs.

As can be expected with hatching eggs, there is a lot of sitting around and waiting. When I checked in this morning, one of the parents was sitting there, as calm as can be.

Thanks everyone!
It's funny, I toured around the photoblogs and noticed that yes, most people around the world had a sunny day this past weekend. Finally.

Hi Pierre
Ah that sounds like a lovely image. I can just imagine it.

Hi Beatrice
Ha, ice cream seems to be the measure of good weather.

I hope you have a good trip to NYC. How great is that?

Hooray, RedPat!
Good to hear this!

Hi Steffe,
Your know-how with people is probably right. I should have asked!
