Red (Tailed) Hawk Down


Well, I'm pretty sure this is a red tailed hawk anyway. I came across him when I was walking back to the office after lunch. He was sitting like this on the corner of Water and Devonshire Streets, right in the middle of the financial district. He was alert - his little head was moving around - but he wasn't reacting at all to the pedestrians walking within feet of him. I called Animal Control (love Google SMS, had the number within seconds!) and they had just dispatched someone out to pick him (her?) up. It was so cute just sitting there, I hope it was okay!

What a gorgeous photo. Poor guy, though, he doesn't look to be ok. Good for you for calling AC. Hopefully they took him to a bird sanctuary. They are such beautiful creatures.
