    Just saw this link - absolutely hilarious. Cooper Hawk in the Library of Congress

    "What one birder at the Library billed (no pun intended) as a Cooper’s Hawk–crowd-source a correction if I’m wrong–somehow recently got into the Library’s majestic Main Reading Room, and has been winging about ever since. It was first noticed by a patron looking dome-ward yesterday afternoon. I’ll include a few pictures here, taken by our very able Abby Brack."

    At least if he's there - he is not chasing our chickens [​IMG]

    I understand the library is advising visitors to wear a hat and refrain from looking up with their mouth open. [​IMG]

    I can't wait to see how the Government deals with this. Since you can hurt them, scare them, or remove them. They get a taste of their own medicine.
