After an early-morning game of Mafia, we set off for the Central Park Zoo. Why the zoo? Our book of the day is Black Wings Beating, by Alex London, a fantasy set in a world where everything – commerce, religion, entertainment, language, warfare – centers around birds of prey. We had arranged for a “birds of prey” tour at the zoo. However, it turned out to be a “bird of prey” tour, as they only have one bird of prey, a beautiful Eurasian Eagle Owl. Our tour guides, Elaine and Ira, took us around the rest of the zoo and gave us insider information about other birds, and other animals, which was very interesting. But I think we were all a little disappointed, not to mention HOT!
