The Urban Bird World Inspires Local Photographer
Photographer Peter Green enjoys bird watching around Rhode Island. But his favorite spot is downtown Providence. Most people are too busy to notice birds of prey circling this urban setting. But Green has become something of an expert. “My specialty is downtown urban raptors,” said Green. “I like to have them on concrete and brick and metal and no trees in the picture because it just shows how amazing they are, that they’re right here.”

A decaying habitat and lack of food has driven more large birds like hawks and owls to fly south in search of prey.
