For those of you following the saga of Violet, the NYU redtail with an injured leg, the news is gratifying: she was finally captured yesterday, December 24th, and taken to a rehabilitator for life-saving treatment. The link below gives the story as published in the New York Times. Meanwhile Murray Head.the Central Park photographer whose photos you have often admired on this blog, warns:

"The video is so very hard to watch on one hand, but that she has been captured
and will get treated and hopefully survive and not slowly starve to death is I think wonderful news."
