    It was my first visit to this particular part of the Rockefeller State Preserve. Upon entering this more secluded part of the park, a beautiful red tailed hawk welcomed me by flying to a tree immediately in front of me. I consider visits like these miracles!

It then flew into another nearby tree and enjoyed its snack
