Today in Hawks around Town: USDA Hawk Continues to Mesmerize – The Story Gets Even Better

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.
