Well this is a first! Thanks to J. for sending:

“Not a raptor, but… Perhaps still of interest? Ed. Note: Hell yes. Apologies for the delay in posting (this and all other tips/emails) as I was out of town last Wed.-Sun.

I saw this tortoise toddling along the center of Logan Circle on Wednesday afternoon. This guy definitely did not belong there, and I didn’t see anyone who might have potentially been its owner. I called animal control, and I hope it is in a more appropriate environment now.”

If you spot a hawk or any other bird of prey or any interesting wildlife around town, lunching or otherwise, and get a good photo please send in 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.
