Thanks to Andrew for sending this awesome update on the USDA Hawk:
“This morning at USDA we saw this Hawk kill a pigeon out of mid-air at the USDA South Building and then a larger bird seemed to steal it away (we are thinking it may have been an immature bald eagle as it was bigger than this one).
We then caught a picture of the hawk sitting at a window. Unfortunately we couldn’t get a good picture of the bigger bird.”
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.

If you say yes, what time do you think it’ll be?
Just after the new year the intersection at the corner of 11th and Pennsylvania NW, right in front of the Trump Hotel, was changed, to the benefit of the new entrance to the hotel and the detriment of those traveling south on 11th. Now the light is green only about three or four seconds long for those going south and turning left on 11th, with a light that is even longer for the few cars exiting the Trump entrance. This is constantly causing backups and done in a way that clearly benefits the hotel. I assume DC still controls the streetlights in this town… what’s up?”
“I found this small Chihuahua/Jack Russell (?) mix with no microchip yesterday running through the streets of Petworth unaccompanied and with no collar. He needed some medical attention so I took him to the NY Avenue Humane Society after canvassing the neighborhood for most of the day … hopefully his owners have reached out to them. He’s a sweet old guy and I’m sure he misses his parent(s).”
The DC Sustainable Energy Utility (DCSEU) helps DC residents and businesses use less energy and save money.
Are you smarter than your home? With all the new artificial intelligence and machine learning technology that’s available, sometimes we can’t be so sure. But the DC Sustainable Energy Utility (DCSEU) is partnering with Nest to help make that happen.
They’re doing it by enabling smart savings. How? First, visit smart.dcseu.com to get your unique $100 coupon code. Next, use that code when you buy your smart thermostat through the Nest website. Buy your thermostat before July 8th to get a total of $150 off the purchase price with Nest’s limited time Fourth of July discount.
The DCSEU, which helps DC residents and businesses use less energy and save money, is also offering $100 mail-in rebates on Ecobee and Honeywell smart thermostats. But Nest is the only manufacturer where you can get instant savings at the point of purchase.
How smart are smart thermostats? Built-in sensors track your whereabouts in the house, and its algorithmic smarts keeps track of when you turn the heat up or down. In about a week it creates a custom temperature schedule, and saves energy by turning itself down when you leave the house. A key feature of the Nest is “Farsight”–it can detect you from 20 feet away, and will greet your presence by lighting up with an easy-to-see temperature reading.
Smart thermostats are also Wi-Fi and mobile app capable. With a flick of a finger on a smartphone or a swipe on a tablet you can control your thermostat from anywhere.
