About today’s photo: “We stumbled upon this Red-tailed Hawk (Buteo jamaicensis) enjoying a meal of freshly caught pigeon in Dupont Circle, and he was happy to let us snap photos for over 15 minutes. He was undisturbed by the traffic, honking horns, and our presence right beneath his tree. This bird was clearly well-adjusted to life in the city.” ok-oyot, February 5.

You can submit up to five photos per day. We are looking for photos from DC’s Dupont, Logan and U Street neighborhoods.
