We have been very birdy here in Greenpoint. A Coopers Hawk has been perching on Norman Ave between Sutton and Nassau, and the Red Tailed Hawks in McCarren have been very visible, like the photograph on the left taken after it took off from from one of the stadium lights. I am getting many emails from neighbors about interesting sightings.
Victoria sent me this great shot of a hawk by the automotive high school.
My mom captured this beauty in Juniper Park in Queens.
And The Dalzens, friends all the way up in Harlem, spotted wild parrots!
All in time for our bird walk this Saturday, with Peter, the president of the Brooklyn Bird Club. More info.
Nancy Pi-Sunyer, of Copy-cology, has created these community identification cards just for Greenpoint! There are two Birds of Greenpoint sets illustrating a total of 16 birds to be found in our awesome neighborhood.
You can do so many things with these cards. You can frame them, because I think they are beautiful pieces of artwork. You can color the birds in. Or you can make a photo copy of the cards and cut them out and play memory or laminate them for pocket reference. We will be selling these cards on Saturday 1/28 during the Bird Walk. Black and White – $5, Color – $10. Plus we will have some ID Card Rings. To find out more check out Copy-cology.
