Thanks to Emily for sending these awesome shots from Meridian Hill Park.

“I think its a juvenile red tailed hawk who was definitely snacking on something while I was watching.”

If you spot a hawk or other bird of prey around town, lunching or otherwise, please send a photo and an email where you spotted it to [email protected] Hawks around Town is made possible by a generous grant from the Ben and Sylvia Gardner foundation.

    i just saw my first bald eagle flying around L’Enfant plaza! I was confused as I never saw one before but my bird expert friend confirmed it! It was a young one but one nonetheless. It was probably looking to flee the USA in light of last week’s Presidential Orders.

    Yesterday afternoon there was a very vocal brown hawk sitting in the tree across form Bolt Burgers at 1010 Mass Ave. I didn’t have a camera on me, but it looked just like this one.
