More Tales of Nature in the City – Hawk Takes Out a Squirrel

“Dear PoP,

pologies for the awful Bberry Phone resolution, but just saw a red-tailed hawk in the park at 19th and Pennsylvania and H NW slowly make it’s way via some low-hanging branches and park benches to a squirrel that it must have already killed, drag it off and begin eating it (pictures are in chronological order). Pretty cool to see something like this up close – quite a majestic bird, although it did seem to have some issues getting the squirrel off the ground and back into the trees.”

Wild.
