Thanks to a reader for sending the shot above from Dupont Circle this morning. Falcon?

And quite the description (actually pretty terrifying because it’s happened to me) on the Hill tweeted by @HStreetDC_:

“Aggressive crow dive-bombing people at 14th/SC SE. Animal Control can’t remove for a few days because of baby birds in nest. Be careful.”

It’s pretty funny though if you happen to see it happen to someone. My neighbor still laughs about the time I was chased up and down the street by a momma bird about 5 years ago.
