Artist's Description

AFTER SPENDING THE BEST PART OF A WINTER’S DAY IN THE CUYAHOGA VALLEY, I DECIDED TO HEAD FOR HOME. IN FRONT OF THE BRANDYWINE SKI AREA THIS GUY WAS JUST SITTING IN THE MIDDLE OF THE ROAD. CARS WERE PULLING UP TO HIM AND HONKING THIER HORNS AND HE WOULD JUST ACT LIKE THEY WEREN’T EVEN THERE.
I REALLY LIKE THESE BIRDS AND I WAS AFRAID HE’D GET HIT SO I PULLED OVER AND GOT OUT OF MY VAN TO SEE IF I COULD SCARE HIM INTO MOVING, BUT HE IGNORED ME TOO. ( THAT WAS AFTER GETTING THE PICTURE, OF COURSE ! ).
AS I GOT OUT OF THE VAN I HEARD SEVERAL CROWS CALLING NEAR BY. THEY MUST HAVE ATTACKED THE HAWK AND BEATEN HIM UP PRETTY BADLY. HE HAD THAT SAME DAZED LOOK YOU’LL SOMETIMES SEE ON A BOXER’S FACE AFTER A BAD ROUND.
I NUDGED HIM A COUPLE TIMES WITH MY LEG AND HE STILL DIDN’T MOVE, SO I STARTED TO BEND OVER TO PICK HIM UP AND TAKE HIM TO THE SIDE OF THE ROAD; HE WASN’T INTERESTED IN THAT, SO HE TOOK OFF. I’M GLAD IT WORKED OUT THAT WAY. THIER BEAKS AND TALONS CAN EXERT BONE-BREAKING PRESSURE AND, AFTER ALL THESE YEARS, I’VE GOTTEN USED TO MY FINGERS BEING RIGHT WHERE THEY ARE, AT THE ENDS OF MY HANDS, AS OPPOSED TO SCATTERED ALL OVER THE VALLEY.
