Birds in their belfry: Hawk emergency at the New York Times

By Melissa Bell

The New York Times brought down a mighty beast yesterday. And we're not talking about any politician.

The bird survived the fall and was taken to the Wildlife in Need of Rescue and Rehabilitation, in Massapequa, on Long Island.

Loved this video. Just yesterday I was watching a red-tailed hawk floating through the air above a canyon in Solana Beach, California with the Pacific Ocean in the background. Nothing like watching a hawk in pursuit of prey.
