A Peregrine (Falco peregrinus) was perched atop the head of the statue of Justice atop Brooklyn’s Borough Hall when I emerged from the R train.The bird remained there as I made some copies, went to the Post Office, and returned to swing around to the chignon-side.Not all Justice is blind. We can see the neo-confederate Jeff Sessions, picked by the self-dealing Fraudster-Elect to make sure the Justice Department is corrupted to his ends, in all his hideousness.The bird flew to this cliff face, where I left it to descend back into the subway. Later that day, a Red-tailed Hawk, Merlin, and possible Cooper’s Hawk were all spotted in Green-Wood. And that evening, another Peregrine, perched on top of St. Michael’s, a sight I haven’t seen since the election.
