I do have a funny bird related story.
I guess a few years ago, people would leave the West Virginia Capital Building in Charleston, WV to feed the squirrels. The Capital grounds are filled with squirrels. There was a Red Tailed Hawk that would swoop down and grab a squirrel for lunch. People were split some people loved the hawk, others hated the hawk. Governor Wise's senior staff debated the Hawk issue. Gov. Wise wanted to get rid of the hawk because it was causing harm to the squirrels. One day the hawk was found in an empty fountian stunned, and taken away from the city and released. Well It came back and Mr. Garrison, my professor and formor Cheif of Staff for Gov. Wise got a pictire of the hawk in a tree covered in blood with a squirrel in his talons. He had this picture blown up with the phrase "caution to all ye who enter here". (if you were called into the Cheif's office, you were in trouble)
