____________________________________________________

This book documents a year in the life of two red-tailed hawks, Crimson and Gray, on the Saint Joseph's University campus in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Crimson and Gray established a territory, built a nest, and successfully hatched two eyasses (young hawks) who became known as Iggy and Swoop. The nearly 50 photos (mostly taken by the university's archivist, Christopher Dixon) are supplemented with seven chapters of text. These address topics ranging from the biology of red-tailed hawks to the intersection of Ignatian spirituality and the natural world.
