W. 56th Street, February 2007

Today's post is especially for my blogging friend JDZS in Seattle, not only because this mural looks vaguely Northwestern, but because JDZS had his own experience recently with an urban eagle. As I was walking along 56th Street on Saturday, I saw the eagle in this mural, appearing to land on that shadow of a branch, and it instantly brought Jeffrey's eagle to mind.

There's actually a lot of other wildlife in this mural, too, including...

...a bright cardinal...

...a timid rabbit...

...and a freaked-out deer.

I especially like the cardinal, which seems very Zen-like: Just a few simple strokes, yet so detailed! There were also ducks, a bear, and other birds, including a blue jay.
