Beautiful photo but sorry to hear about the loss of Dame Edna. John writes:

“I have three backyard chooks in a coop I built myself in Kensington, MD: Persephone, Dame Edna and Madge. They all have personalities and I regard them as pets. I let them out occasionally for a run around the back yard, but unfortunately Dame Edna got taken by a red tailed hawk. I decided to leave the carcass in the yard for the hawk to feed on as it is winter and it has its right to the kill despite my grieving. This is the hawk coming down the next morning for round two of her/his meal.”

Whoa, Dan Herrera posted to the Capital Naturalist Facebook Group on Friday:

“This bobcat was observed at the C&O Canal in DC! iNaturalist doesn’t show any observations in the area, and the last documented bobcat in the district appears to have escaped (but is now returned) from the zoo. So this is quite the find!

North of Georgetown – closer to the Palisades neighborhood”

Ed. Note: Although, it does look a little bit like Cookie

Thanks to Brianna for sending: “I work across from St. Matthew’s Cathedral and am wondering about the bird of prey that has come the past two winters to perch on the cupola pretty much every day. Has anyone identified what kind of bird it is?”

And thanks to David for sending from “Top of Superior Court” Read More
