New York Celebrity Sightings

I was in New York City this past weekend for a friend's party.  I got into Penn Station early and had some time to walk around the city.  Having always wanted to see the Guggenheim Museum, I decided to take the 3-ish mile stroll up 8th avenue, through Central Park and over to the museum.

8th Avenue was packed, and after a minute I saw a tall guy with a white mustache walking towards me. John Cleese!  I've been a huge Monty Python fan forever, and seeing him in person - even if he was just walking past on a sidewalk - was a huge thrill.  Here's a cell phone picture I snapped:

Haha nah I didn't have time to take a picture.
Anyway, I figured my celebrity sightings were over for the day.  After checking out the Guggenheim (very cool) I headed back down 5th Avenue.  After a couple blocks I heard the distinct screeching of a Red-tailed Hawk.  Pale Male!  In the world of birding, I don't think there's a bigger celeb.  

OK, it's not the best picture, but like those paparazzi who have to get whatever shots they can get when they see a skinny-dipping starlet, I did the best I could. New York! City of the Rich and Famous!
