Washington, DC

Awesome. Thanks to John for sending: ” Bald eagle spotted eating on telephone pole in alley behind N St NW near 5th St on the morning of the 25th.”

Some other Bald Eagles recent sightings here.

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.


Thanks to Michael for sending an update to the Civility Lives post:

“Block and alley cleanup

Sharing a positive approach to the trash problem in DC. After many months of an alley just piling up with garbage and weeds growing everywhere, and a couple of people taking taking unilateral action, 8 families out of 25 on the block, rallied on Sunday afternoon to clean and weed. It was amazing to see and after two weeks everyone continues to look good. Can we start a trend? Everyone can do this. Anyone with a trashy alley or block should do this.”

“Dear PoPville,

I live on Euclid in Columbia Heights. Our entire building’s mail was bundled with a neighboring building and tossed at our front steps. It contained almost every mail in ballot for the November election. Lucky one of our residents noticed the bundle and brought it inside. Definitely not a normal delivery.”

From DC Board of Elections:

“Please remember that as ballots are arriving, they are being mailed in batches. Not everyone in the same household will receive their ballots on the same day.”

Thanks to Andy for sending: “We’ve lost a lot of good spots in Penn Quarter but this one really stings. Hopefully “temporarily suspended” is accurate and it’s not gone for good.”
