Kestrels take up residence in LIC

From LiQCity:

“It was a good week for falcons in LIC. Two fledgling Kestrels (one male, one female) showed up on stoops on 45 Ave., resting between learning-stages of flight, cautiously accepting raw hamburger and posing for photos by polite humans, as their parents swooped and screamed from overhead. As of Saturday, it seems they’ve found their wings as they haven’t returned. But they’re clearly welcome new local residents, as we hope they will prey on local vermin…”

Well how about that...even birds prefer to live in historic districts!

They prefer to live in the best places because they have the sharpest eyesight, unlike humans who are known to be blinded by hype.
