Today I saw:

• A baby bluebird taking it's first flight. At first I thought it was a butterfly, it was so small, but then I noticed the round body in addition to the flapping wings and realized that it wasn't a swirly butterfly, but a baby taking off!

• Three deer, 2 of which were very young youngins!

• Cherry Blossoms

•  Bluebirds

• A Crow

And this article. There is a pair of red-tailed Hawks who have made a nest on the 12th floor of NYU's library. There are 3 eggs in the nest and they're predicted to hatch around April 22nd. 

So a hawk family, sacred to Mercury, is perched on the 12th floor of a massive library (from which I get my awesomely cool occult books). Yeah, that just works. I'm gonna watch for the hatchlings!

Enjoy Spring!


  1. Do you know there are supposed to be more hawks living on the tall buildings in NYC than in the entire rest of New York state? We have quite a few of them living here in Philadelphia, too.

  2. I didn't but that makes sense! I always see at least a few on the ride to PA. It makes me feel like I'm in the Hawk Zone of Influence!
