Last week we saw a great shot of a hawk on H Street, NE. This weekend Rachel reports:

“Sighted on my run on Saturday morning: a red tail hawk perched on a branch, eating a rat for breakfast, at the corner of Euclid and Georgia Ave. Completely unperturbed by passersby. Glad that DC’s reputation as the third rattiest city is benefiting at least some of the local inhabitants!”
