    That’s awesome! Urban wildlife! Looks like a Red-tailed Hawk. Is the bird holding prey in its talons? It looks like it might have a Rock Pigeon. Thanks for sharing this photo!

    Yes Lisa!
    It was holding a pigeon. The pigeon stayed there and was gone the next morning.

    That’s where he went! He must have escaped while I was at class.

    Awesome! This hawk was over behind Bay State Rd. yesterday afternoon, eating a squirrel on a rooftop.
