Washington, DC

Heads up to the the hawks around town.

Thanks to Yaron for sending:

“Is anyone missing a fat pigeon in Petworth? Or any bird experts that can tell me why this guy has been sitting on my fence for the past 3 hours? It didn’t budge when my dog ran up and started barking at it. We almost never get pigeons in our yard.”

Ed. Note: In all seriousness – City Wildlife is on the case.

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 Friends of the White Whale Society.


“It moved from the fence some time overnight but is now walking around my back yard. Seems unable or disinterested in flying away when I approach.”
