"Wandering” Through Park Skies: How Peregrine Falcons Connect National Parks.

Peregrine Falcons can be found in national park sites across the United States. Today we are connecting our unique falcon stories with @sequoiakingscanyon , @acadianps , and @bigbendnps. These birds are spotted at sites from west, to north, to south to east like here at the Statue of Liberty.

The Statue of Liberty is just one of many New York City sites used by peregrine falcons. These sites include many skyscrapers and large bridges throughout the metropolitan area. Liberty Island is unique in that the human activity is abundant -- when in full operation, around 20,000 people visit Liberty Island each summer day and 4.5 million visitors come each year.

There are many reasons why this national monument is a magnet for peregrine falcons. First and foremost, the vast height of this metal and stone structure mimics the natural, high-altitude cliff habitat that the bird adapted to over the millennia.

To learn more about these amazing creatures and their activities across the United States check out this article :

My great great grandpa, Abbo Fischer, had a special place in his heart for the Statue of Liberty. Abbo was a German stow away, hiding in a coal bin on a German cargo ship when he was a young boy trying to get to America. When they found him they kept him to work on the ship for two years before he escaped. When the ship made a trip to the New York harbour he saw the statue of Liberty and jumped over board and swam in.
the statue of liberty, the virgin Mary - pray for us!!!
Statue of liberty is Mother Mary-that’s actually Ishtar, the babalonian mother goddess, witch can also be Mary

You want to see anything else you are used to see? You want to do something else you are used to do? This travel here won't even be expensive, and you won't regret it. Québec has everything you need to relax during your journey. He has organized its environment to charm you. Some town has the reputation to welcome guests in Sherbrooke and Trois-Rivières. Those towns are so beautiful to see, and not even expensive. Hotel, national park, conoe, camping and more. It's simple, go to a touristic guide, and he will guide you depending your needs. In Trois-Rivières, you can get a daily ticket for the family that costs 10$ canadian only, and it allows you to go everywhere in town. Playing golf will calm yourself, it's promised. Don't take a chance to miss anything there. I'm living in Trois-Rivières, and I can confirm you that this town is peaceful with nice people. French is easier to hear and fun to speak. Never, I have thought to move out from Québec, just because the majority of people are calm. It's your turn to decide if you want to go here one time or live here forever. Vous avez envie de voir d'autres choses que ce que vous avez l'habitude de voir. Vous avez envie de vous changer un peu les idées? Avec un voyage qui vous coûtera peu, vous n'allez pas regretter ce que vous verrez. Le Québec a tout pour que vous relaxiez pendant votre séjour. Il s'est très bien préparé pour vous accueillir dans sa charmante place. Des lieux cultes sont encore plus intéressantes comme Sherbrooke et Trois-Rivières. Ce qui m'impressionne de ces milieux-là, c'est qu'ils ne sont même pas chers, et toujours beau à visiter. Hôtel, parc national, canot, camping etc. C'est simple, allez dans un bureau de tourisme, et il vous guidera selon vos besoins. À Trois-Rivières, vous pouvez prendre l'autobus pour 10$ canadien pour la famille, et aller où vous voulez en ville. Jouer une partie de golf vous apaisera l'esprit, c'est garanti. Bref, il n'y a rien que vous ne pouvez pas voir. Je vis à Trois-Rivières, et je vous confirme que cette ville est bon à vivre. Les gens ont adapté leur français pour que vous vous amusiez, en conversant avec eux. Pour tout dire, je ne déménagerais jamais du Québec, justement pour sa tranquillité. C'est maintenant à votre tour, de décider si votre passage est unique, ou permanant.
Happy Mothers Day to the Lady of Liberty! also wish a Wonderfully Happy Mothers Day to the wonderful ladies in my family: Ann, LeAnna, Candice, Acacia, Brianna, Sarah, Heather, Shirley, Andrea, and any I forgot. I love you all and wish you the best of everything and thank you for being part of my family.

I'm writing a novel, Romance in New York. In my novel my protagonist takes his fiancé for visiting La Liberté Eclairant le Monde. In this novel I'm trying to show how Rose, my protagonist's fiancé might experience her visit upon Liberty Island. That means I need knowing what flora is present plus what it smells and looks like. So far, after searching three search engines, I found nothing. Rose is from Georgia and Eastern 'Bama. She has never left our deep South until she came to New York about a month ago. She did graduate from Auburn. They next visit Ellis Island. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
