Thanks to Katie for sending:

“I teach 3rd grade in McLean, VA. Back in February, my students and I were able to experience the food chain in action when this hawk landed outside of our classroom with a sparrow in its talons!”

Thanks to Andrew for sending this awesome update on the USDA Hawk:

“This morning at USDA we saw this Hawk kill a pigeon out of mid-air at the USDA South Building and then a larger bird seemed to steal it away (we are thinking it may have been an immature bald eagle as it was bigger than this one).

We then caught a picture of the hawk sitting at a window. Unfortunately we couldn’t get a good picture of the bigger bird.”

Thanks to a reader for sending from Princeton Pl, NW last night. Can anyone identify? If so please let me know ASAP so I can let OP know if they can climb down from the tree or not.

Thanks to a reader for sending this great shot:

“A mama hawk has a nest and 2 little ones on the side of USDA/Whitten Building. Today I found her checking out our solar powered hula dancer.”

The odds of this happening to you are probably like winning the lottery but holy moly.

“Dear PoPville,

Not long ago you posted a picture of a sign that appeared at a local playground warning parents of the presence of potentially poisonous snakes, and the resulting thread in part turned into a discussion of whether or not copperhead snakes live in the DC area. Well, fyi, if you haven’t seen this yet, check it out:

A Silver Spring woman was recently bitten by a venomous snake — in her bed:

“The snake in Christie’s bed was a copperhead, which seldom get longer than three feet. But it was big enough. It had bitten Christie — twice, it turned out.”

Now normally I despise squirrels as much as the next guy but this one has won me over. Thanks to Stephanie for sending from Columbia Heights.
