The Brooklyn Botanic Garden is free before noon on Saturdays. This is in the Eastern Parkway subway station, which exits facing the Brooklyn Museum.

Before heading into Prospect Park, where this bronze eagle is to be found flanking the Lincoln statue, I saw a red-tail hawk and osprey circling each other. Then, like Mighty Mouse to the rescue, a kestrel zoomed into the picture, chasing off the osprey.
Doughboy and Death in Prospect Park. Not at all that kind of day, but this is still a haunting statue.
