Red-tailed Hawk. They nested this year on a Beacon Hill fire escape next to the state house.

I just hope none of the rats are poisoned.

Rat poison is awful stuff. I hate that it's so widespread around here.

I had a big hawk fly by my stoop followed by 3 cawing Crows.

Why do crowshate hawks?

(What they know is that hawks eat crows, including baby crows.)

There's an Old English term for that - 'mobbing'. And yeah, a mob of crows gets together and drives off a hawk that way.

But sometimes, crows do it just for the fun of it, and to remind hawks that's there's strength in numbers.
