Celeste 04/12/04 03:33 pm I finished the book Shelley, and found it really interesting! Particularly for New Yorkers, it is amazing the many different birds that are found living in Central Park, particularly the red-tail hawks who sometimes use ledges on buildings near the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Anyways, one of the tidbits I read was that in one season, from August 15 through December 6, 851 osprey were sighted flying over Central Park migrating South for the winter!!!!(peak viewing was 9/1-10/15! Osprey are the earliest arrivals and can be seen from the first day of the "hawkwatch" season. The peak was seen September 19th. It even said that the numbers of osprey passing over the Park has been on the increase!!! What an amazing sight it must be to see osprey, eagles and other raptors migrating over the city on there way south!!!
Shelley 04/12/04 03:48 pm I'm so glad you liked the book, Celeste. I also enjoyed it tremendously. I had to chuckle, though. Did you notice that she acknowledged thanks to Mary Tyler Moore, but not to Woody Allen (although she mentions his name frequently). I'm guessing he was less than helpful, at times... ;-)

I've just started another book that is, so far, really interesting. It's called "Animals as Teachers and Healers" by Susan Chernak McElroy. Non-fiction and comes highly recommended to me by another animal-loving friend.
