Thanks to Emily for sending:

“Saw this Coopers Hawk in Meridian Hill Park on Sunday.”

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

    Great shot!

  • Suse

    The tree: what is that tree?

      Sycamore. Messy things.

  • I’ve seen a hawk several times in Meridian Hill park – seems to favor a perch in the NE corner of the park, but those are all oaks, so I’m guessing this in in the lower part of the park?

    Let’s tout DC as “City of Hawks.” Love it.
