Stamp: Hand Carved
This bird has the distinction of being the world’s swiftest animal; it can reach speeds of close to 200 miles per hour in a downward dive and snatch other birds right out of the air! It is primarily a cliff bird and being on the endangered list has, thankfully, learned to live with humans by making their homes on the ledges of high-rises. Look closely and you may be lucky enough to spot this incredible creation of Mother Nature…. or you can search for my crude facsimile of this amazing creature..
Your search starts at the Lee Baldwin Trail. Head south over four bridges and follow the trail to the Beech tree forest. Pass the cul-de-sac on the right, to a rock with a plaque commemorating Robert Taft Olmstead. On the left a short way up the trail you will see a large erratic. Stand with the erratic on your left and look just right of ahead. There is a ‘row’ of three Beeches with the fourth being a triple. The ‘Duck Hawk ‘ is comfortably nesting in the middle this triple.
Please re-hide carefully
