Washington, DC

Thanks to Gabe for sending:

“Always great to get a reminder that there’s some pretty cool wildlife in the park!

Also, dog owners should always keep their pets on-leash in the park. This fella had multiple bite marks in his or her shell (as well as a front claw that appears to have taken some damage at some point), and it seems pretty unlikely a fox or coyote would go after something this big. Hopefully this one made it back to the creek unmolested!”

If you spot a hawk or any interesting wildlife around town, lunching or otherwise, and get a good photo please send 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.
