This snowy egret was keeping an eye (or two) on things the other day, as shown here and below:
Here's a bird of a different feather over in Avenue G - one of two black vulture siblings.
They left their attic nest at 123 North 5th earlier in the week.
Here's one last photo before they left the scene entirely.

You can even play the game of "Find the Cat"!
