While May is the traditional start of snakes falling out of trees season, it is not uncommon to spot rat snakes in June. Fear not, they pose no threat to humans. Also, they eat rats which is good.

If you spot a hawk or any interesting wildlife and get a good photo please send in an email where you spotted it to [email protected]. Thanks! Hawks around Town is made possible by a generous grant from the Ben and Sylvia Gardner foundation.
