A red-tailed hawk keeps the campus here as part of his territory (though I am not sure where he nests). I spotted him this morning as I was leaving the library. Actually, I heard him first -- the clatter of his talons on the metal lampshade. I looked up and there he was, enjoying a breakfast of some at this point unidentifiable meat. My money would be on squirrel. I snapped a quick photo with my phone. I can't exactly say why, but catching him looking at me was very cool.
A beautiful fall day here. Unless you're a squirrel, I suppose.
