Thanks to Duane for sending around 5pm yesterday. Technically I think these guys are either Turkey Vultures or Black Vultures. Our resident ornithologist has grand jury duty – can anyone confirm exactly what these guys are called? Whatever they are called they caused quite the scene yesterday. And because Twitter can be awesome – check out this phenomenal/terrifying encounter by Dayana Sarkisova back on December 31st. It is INSANE.

But yesterday’s story gets better/worse:

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.

More photos from Duane after the jump.
