Raptor Wednesday

Accipiter cooperiiA Cooper’s Hawk on a winter’s day. JJAudubonHere’s Audubon’s rendition. Normally, I find JJ’s birds on the strangely attenuated side, longer and skinnier than they are, probably a result in his pinning up their dead bodies to illustrate them. But I like his capturing of the patterning on the back here very much.

Another thing I like is Mike Davis, a great American radical. LA has always been his beat, but he has much else to say. This interview in retirement gives a flavor.

Last call: my illustrated lecture at the fantastic Brooklyn Brainery is tonight at 8:30.
