Bilingual, eco-sensitive hawks!

Photographer and hawk observer Bruce Yolton read yesterday's report here about the Trump-Parc nest and sent the following clarification. It was addressed to me and John Blakeman:

Marie and John,

WIth regards to today's post about newspaper's in the nest...

The two large pieces of paper seen in Lincoln's photos are both 8 1/2 x 11 paper added by Junior while I was photographing them on Saturday. I saw Junior catch one in midair as it floated in the air between the Hampshire House and Trump Parc. It was an impressive sight.

One sheet of paper is in Spanish with writing which looks to be about the New Testament.

So, Junior not only keeps down the pigeon and rat populations, he collects litter and recycles.
