Hawk attack in Somerville

Linking to this story about a dude getting jacked up by a hawk while he was walking down the street minding his own business (the dude was walking, not the hawk) because I have a fascination with the hawks that hang out in Boston. I can think of at least 3 posts I’ve written about them over the years, including the 2nd or 3rd post I wrote when I started blogging again in 2004. HOLY SHIT that was a long time ago.

Hawk in Boston

Another hawk sighting in the city. Along with imagining seeing that giant out on the fire escape and being freaked out that he’d eat me, I’m compelled to blog about hawks in Boston so I can link to one of my first blog posts after starting to blog again in 2004. I was sitting at my desk in Davis Sq when there was a flutter and thump outside the window and a hawk had caught a pigeon in mid-air and then smothered it right on the sidewalk… I went out to check it out, and it flew off thinking I was trying to steal his pigeon. I didn’t realize that happened in the city, but it does. And they attack people at Fenway, too.
