New Home Market Looking Up in the Villa
For the past couple of years I've noticed an occasional hawk in my Chicago neighborhood – usually high up in a tree, disemboweling some poor rodent.
This morning the neighborhood listserv reported that a pair was nest-building in the next block. I grabbed my 70-200 and my smaller sensor camera (for the extra distance boost) and headed over there. Hawks are not skittish.
I guess they looked around and figured that with all the pigeons, squirrels, and rabbits that have taken over this neighborhood, they'd never go hungry.
