And now, an episode of Wild Kingdom...

I saw a hawk drop out of a tree and kill a mouse/mole on my way to work today. He then flew past me at the next set of lights and landed on the building where he and the wife are raising some chicks eyasses. (Yes, I'm assuming it's the male doing the hunting; yes, that's sexist).

The nest:

The nest (not present in the above imagery) is on a small ledge just above and to the left of the 185. Every morning I see photographers out there taking pictures and I believe there is a webcam pointing at the nest from a few feet away. While not a live feed, this is a YouTube video about them, and contains footage from the camera:

Here's the Wikipedia article about them.

We now return you to your regularly scheduled Internet...

A day in Boston with friends

The day started out with dim sum at China Pearl, we escaped the cloudburst in Fanuiel Hall, and are now enjoy gelato at Gelateria in the North End. Life is good.
