This photo came about on one of my many trips to Govenor’s Island. I usually go through the week when it is really quiet and you have less crowds. I was walking past the baseball fields on the West side of the Island when I saw the bird just sitting perched with not a care watching the world go by. So I took the picture of it as it sat chilled out with not a care in the world.
