Washington, DC

Thanks to Amy for sending: “My 11-year old son Joseph is an avid birder and spotted this Cooper’s hawk eating a squirrel in Crestwood.”

And thanks to Ashanti for sharing with us yesterday: “Bald eagle spotted in Columbia Heights!”

I know some folks can be a bit squeamish about “the spoils” so I’ve blurred it out above but for those who want to see the original photo:

If you spot a hawk 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.
