Scary when you actually think about it. We brag about being the ultimate predator on Earth despite our lack of obvious physical advantages and yet we really are. Not to mention we have developed ways to kill something without being anywhere near it should it be necessary, or dare I say, fun?

Beautiful bird! Red-tailed Hawk. The EJC Arboretum has a live nesting pair. We think one of our hawks was seriously injured. We had a report of a hawk disabled on the ground, Virginia Wildlife Center volunteers tried to find but couldn't. If anyone has a sighting, call the office (540) 568-3194, stay with the downed bird, until help arrives! We don't want our hawk to die. We hope it can be helped.
