Did you see the cool birding story on the news last night?
Apparently a Cooper’s hawk flew into the reading room at the Library of Congress
in D.C. It was speculated that a few tasty doves may have lured him in (we don’t like to think too much about that, though). At any rate, visitors were actually birdwatching with
binocs from INSIDE this national treasure. Not your every day occurence!
The story had a happy ending, when the hawk was captured. Turns out he badly needed hydration, and was tended to by the Raptor Conservancy of Northern Virginia, which facilitated the rescue.
The Cooper’s hawk was nicknamed Jefferson, which we’re sure Thomas would have liked.
Your friends at Devils Garden Bird Park just wanted to make sure you didn’t miss this great story.
