Thread subject: Hawk in the Library of Congress
Name Date Message
Melanie 01/20/11 06:56 pm Apparently there is a Coopers Hawk who got into the LOC and is hanging out in the main reading room. story here



Guess this one decided Home Depot didn't live up to his expectations ;-p
terryo 01/21/11 05:29 am I bet you the hawk was doing some late night ancestry reading and wasn't watching it's leg watch.
Melanie 01/21/11 10:19 am What I want to know is how do you "coax" a raptor down? Do they have a hawk whisperer?

Great picture HERE
martyc35 01/21/11 12:52 pm Well, maybe the taxpayers won't have to foot the bill for killing the mice in the Library of Congress reading room. SOME good should come from this:-). Actually, I hope they find a humane way to free the poor thing.

Lori 01/21/11 02:13 pm He's looking for the Presidents "book" ;p
Celeste 01/21/11 02:25 pm I think Melanie is right....The Home Depot is a bit too chilly this time of year.
Melanie 01/21/11 04:11 pm Someone suggested that they let a few rats loose in the library. I told them that with Congress being right across the street they really don't need to go far to find any vermin ;-p

They are bringing in Fish & Wildlife - hopefully it will be Craig Koppie. He's a raptor specialist and seems to be their "go to" guy when it comes to raptors. He's also the guy who was also involved with George & Martha, the ill-fated bald eagle pair in DC.
Anne UK1 01/21/11 05:45 pm What an impressive looking bird. I hope they manage to coax him out safely - he's not exactly within easy reach.
