    The raptor invasion continues! We’re all doomed.
    But seriously, I saw an enormous hawk this morning in Meridian Hill Park, and it made me smile.

    There are at least two barred owls that live in Rock Creek Park/Walter Pierce Park/Adams Mill Road. They are pretty awesome and we’re pretty lucky to live with them.

    I’ve gotten swooped by owls more times than I want to remember while running in RCP before dawn (by headlamp). Those things really hate me! They love to grab my hat and headlamp and scare the crap out of me. Vicious!
