And they do not disappoint.

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.

    Ingenious idea! And awwww, cute ducklings!

  • A reminder – please do not feed bread, or crackers etc. to ducks. It is super bad for them. If you want to feed them – torn up bits of lettuce or any leafy greens, corn, peas (defrosted) rolled oats and of course duck food pellets, which you can buy online.

      Heartily second this. Eating bread is a ticket to malnutrition/death. The poor ducklings in Lafayette Park regularly go belly up because folks feed them crap.

    Some ass Republican Congressman took a photo of this and called it government waste. If those ducklings want to use our tax dollars for recreational purposes, they need to book memberships at Mar-a-Lago dammit.

      Though, if you want to marvel at the ways “duck you” can be said to a GOP rep from North Carolina (a state that has an entire town named Duck!), read the dude’s Twitter. It’s pretty amazing…

      Not to mention the kids’ two ski trips with many Secret Service agents, hotel rooms & ski equip for all.
