One pleasant feature of working in a city centered on an isthmus between two lakes is the bird spotting. A few years ago an eagle was soaring over State Street while I waited for a bus, and last Friday a crane honked his way above the street. (heading in the direction of some mechanical cranes...) Lake Mendota is just a couple of blocks north, and Monona just 6 or seven blocks south, so birds can visit the heart of the city without passing over miles of buildings.
