Like many in today's real-estate market, everyone's willing to look even further east.
Today, a familiar face was checking out homes on 7th between C and D and received a mixed reception. Some longtime neighborhood residents exhibited marked hostility; others had fingers crossed that this newcomer would choose to stay.
The well-wishers fantasized a new laser focus on reduction of the blocks rodent population.
But the haters, per eyewitness accounts, made their hostility known.
Multiple members of a local blue-jay clique jeered sharp jaay-jaays and repeatedly dive bombed youngblood hawk.
The clannish residents entered attack mode, pecking at his noggin as he sat placidly upon a branch pondering the new location.
Fans tried but failed to capture documentation of the skirmish (see photo below). Nest shopping stopped when a kit of pigeons circled 6th Street, ending the outing to the east.
