This poor Cooper's hawk was trapped in the Library of Congress all week. I'm amazed that she didn't starve. A hawk of this size needs the equivalent of a quail a day, and she got only two meals in a week's time.
I suppose that this is more evidence that the nation's predatory bird populations are on the rise.
