A new neighbor has moved in on the roof of the building right opposite to my office window in downtown Athens. A small hawk, an accipiter brevipes or sparrowhawk, I am not so sure about the species ( a “saini” in Greek).
What I am sure of, is that every morning I am looking forward to go to work (!!!) just to see him standing on the worn scaffold, observing everything – including me – and after a while start flying up in the sky in nice wide circles, until I can’t see him anymore.
I don’t know why he decided to stay in this place but I am grateful for driving my gaze out and up every day. My strange new friend…
