It's a Bird

Raptor, Steeple, Desanctified Church

I haven't gotten a good enough shot yet to figure out what sort of bird of prey hangs out atop the former St. Michael of the Archangels Church steeple. She perches up there, and then takes to the skies, soaring around, hunting, presumably.
It's so difficult to even a get a decent pic of her because of the distance. I got this one with MK's digital camera, but if I'd had Reichter's digital, with the extra telephoto lens, well, THEN maybe I'd have some luck. In fact, that's exactly what I'm going to do this weekend. Borrow his camera and hope the bird shows up and sits pretty for me.

She must have a view of the whole city from there. Or maybe she's a feathery gargoyle?
