Mindy sends the great shot above:
“A hawk near Upper Senate Park. A squirrel was taunting it. Unsuccessful in catching squirrel 2x.”
and more scavenger than bird of prey but Christina sends the shot below of a couple of Turkey Vultures chilling at 14th and S St, NW:
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.
