Now normally I despise squirrels as much as the next guy but this one has won me over. Thanks to Stephanie for sending from Columbia Heights.

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.

    This is AWESOME. Though I can’t think of anything off the top of my head, this strikes me as prime caption contest material.

    Squirrels are so cool little creatures. My cat loves watching them!

    • TinkerTaylor

      I’m siding with you and your cat over Dan and the next guy on this one.

  • It’s just me

    I was on a tour at the Alhambra in Granada Spain and the tour guide call squirrels “rats with good PR”

  • dcgator

    I’ll give Pizza Rat the upperhand just because there’s a video, but this is pretty great, too.

    So we’ve got hawks, buzzards, pancake squirrels , and albino squirrels. DC wildlife is entertaining.
