Been getting tons of messages (thanks to all who’ve sent) from folks spotting White Whales – thanks to Judith for sending these – they’re multiplying:

“Both spotted near the mall at 3rd & Madison NW and along the outside of the NGA West Building. They are two separate squirrels!”

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 Elle for depressing me on this fine summer day. And now you too shall share in our grief, I’m afraid. From the Washington Post:

“Federal workers cared for a mother duck before rats devoured her nest. Then this lone duckling hatched.”

Obviously it’s nice the lone duckling was saved but having read the full post story I feel awful. God damn it I need a hug. Or a trip to The Pug.

“Saw a wild turkey on Pennsylvannia Ave this morning (surely there’s a great pun somewhere in there?!)….next to the Salvation Army building….actually my beagle spied it first!”

Thanks to Liz for sending the beautiful beast above: “I spotted a red-tailed black squirrel on Florida Ave between 18th and 19th St this morning!”

And thanks to Craig for sending the drop dead gorgeous shot above from Franklin Square.

Thanks to Carlos for sending:

“I heard a crow cawing its head at 10th between N and O NW so i looked up and spotted this guy. It looked at me and then spread its wings, the pic does not do it justice for size but this sucker was huge!”
