Remember that awesome Audubon Mural Project mural I saw a couple of months ago? The “Western Tanager” by Yu-baba? Well I found another one, this time a “Peregrine Falcon” by Australian street artist Damien Mitchell!
This mural can be found on St. Nicholas Ave. between W 147 and W 148 Street near the A, C, B, D station and M3 bus stop. I love how the falcon is depicted in mid-flight. Its eyes are also very captivating.

Over the weekend I came across this beautiful mural in Washington Heights on the iron gate of Marina Dental Center.
Painted by Belarusian artist Yu-baba as part of the Audubon Mural Project, the mural features a gorgeous western tanager, an American songbird, surrounded by leaves and berries.
In collaboration with Gitler &_____ Gallery, the National Audubon Society’s Audubon Mural Project brings awareness to the climate-threatened birds of our environment.
Needless to say, I’m going on a hunt for all the rest of these murals! There are 67 murals currently complete, with 247 left to be painted.
