Washington, DC

Thanks to Emily for sending: “Spotted this guy a couple days ago while on a walk in Carver/Langston. He was just chilling on the fence for a solid 5 minutes.”

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.
