There’s red-tailed hawks nesting and fledging at 185 Alewife (across from the Fresh Pond mall, a busy place). This guy managed to fly into the building and land (fall?) in the parking lot. Everyone was getting worried that he had broken something, when he proved that he was ok.

That’s him (?), right in the middle. Great neighborhood.
