Thanks to Anthony for sending yesterday afternoon:

“File this under you really never know what you’ll see walking around #DC. Wonder if he was on the metro?”

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 Ben and Sylvia Gardner foundation.
