Contributor Karen Anne Kolling of RI wrote a concerned email about the interactions between the Riverside Hawks and the traffic on the Henry Hudson Parkway, asking if signage might be installed to help protect the hawks. And guess what? Here is the response she received--

To All;

Due to the danger posed to the hawks in the area, we have issued orders to install “20 MPH Speed Limit” signs for the ramp exiting the southbound Henry Hudson Parkway at West 79th Street . We are trying to get these installed as soon as possible. It is important to note that the enforcement of this speed limit is the jurisdiction of the NYC Police Department.

Thank you for your concern regarding this serious condition.

Hurrah!!!! Will wonders never cease? It certainly can't hurt and it might just help. Next they need signs for Red-tails that copy the style of the deer crossing signs.

Like this turkey, I'm about to make a getaway. I'll be at the Pennsic War, the 38th of that name, for the next two weeks. The one place during the year where my two daughters and I are all in the same place at the same time.

Postings will depend on space availability at the Mystic Mail tent.

For those who would like to know more about the Pennsic War, (the loser has to take Pittsburgh), go to
