  • Red-tailed hawk impaled with arrow; suspect sought

    09/10/2018 8:01:12 PM PDT · by boycott · 36 replies ^ | 9-10-2018 | Leada Gore
    The Alabama Wildlife and Freshwater Fisheries Division is looking for information to find the person who shot an arrow through a Red-tailed Hawk. The division received reports of the wounded falcon Sunday in the Hartselle area of Morgan County. A member of the Alabama Hawking Association responded to the scene but was unsuccessful in their efforts to capture the hawk for medical treatment. Efforts to locate and capture the bird continue today. "Hawks are protected by state and federal laws. Most sportsmen make good, ethical choices, and don't like to see when others choose not to," the division said in...

    This is NYC, not rural NJ. This is what makes this so weird. While my neighbor's 18 month old and 3 year old daughters were happily splashing around in a little pool in the yard, a red tailed hawk landed on the porch railing not 10' from the little girls. My neighbor shot several pics with her cell phone. She would have called me over, knowing I'm an avid birder, but I had just left in my car on an errand. Scared that the raptor might hurt her kids, she grabbed them and took them inside. I guess Mr. Hawk...

    A cheep slut has come between a hawk and her hubby. For the last five years, two red-tailed hawks named Christo and Dora have ruled the roost at Tompkins Square Park, mating and raising 10 chicks together. But three months ago, Dora had to leave and go to rehab for an injured wing. And while hawks usually mate for life, an opportunistic bachelorette named Nora soon arrived and began flapping her feathers at Christo.

    Since it was introduced in 1976, well over a thousand of BAE Systems' Hawk trainer jets have entered service in 18 countries around the world. Now the latest variant, the Advanced Hawk, has taken to the air for the first time in the skies over Warton, Lancashire, UK in demonstrator form. Boasting a new wing design and a revamped cockpit, the Anglo-Indian two-seater is intended to train pilots to handle fifth-generation combat aircraft. The Advanced Hawk is designed to bridge the gap between basic training and hands-on supersonic fighter training(Credit: BAE Systems) With the introduction of aircraft such as the...

    Blast off! Watch as this squirrel leaps from tree and escapes from being this hawk’s lunch. Many scenarios in life require the fight or flight instinct. It is pretty clear which one this squirrel chose in his near death experience. This brown squirrel went from being dead meat to a flying squirrel in a matter of seconds. Like something out of a movie, it looks as if the squirrel hit Inspector Gadget’s ejector button as he launches from the greenery and into the blue sky. The squirrel lives to see another day and is telling all his squirrel buddies what...
  • 'Combat Hawk' aircraft by next year's 'Aero India'

    Press Trust of India ^ | February 11, 2016
    The combat version of Advanced Jet Trainer, Hawk aircraft, is likely to be showcased in the next year's Aero India, a biennial air show of India. State-run Hindustan Aeronautics Limited is hoping that the 'Combat Hawk' will be an ideal export product besides being used domestically. Highly placed sources said a foreign country has already evinced interest in the product. They said that such an aircraft, slower than a fighter jet, can be useful for operations in forested areas and in low mountains. Moreover, many countries cannot afford to spend big on bigger fighter aircraft and hence the project has...

    Conservative Review ^ | December 17th, 2015 | Daniel Horowitz
    Is it “hawkish” to empower the Muslim Brotherhood throughout the Middle East? What about arming Al Qaeda affiliates and creating chaos for Jihad to thrive? Thanks to Tuesday night’s debate, the American people finally observed a substantive debate that highlights the false choice and phantom labeling of “isolationist” vs. hawk.  There legitimately are some isolationists who believe the Islamists are not a problem so long as we don’t “bother” them.  But that is not the position of most conservatives.  In fact, most conservatives fully understand the threat of Islamic supremacism.  It is those who subscribe to the Graham/McCain/Rubio foreign policy...

    So across my street there is Hawk or big Raptor type bird that lives in a tree, well this spring it had some hatch-lings and now they are flying around the nearby house shrieking and raising a ruckus, think the momma bird tossed them out of the nest as they can now fly. Wondering if any freeples out there have any idea what sort bird this is, I managed to get some up close pics of them. I need a few questions answered. 1. Will they damage my property? 2. Will they kill the squirrels that actually do damage my...

Officers called in San Diego Fire-Rescue crews who contained the fire within an hour. Fire officials initially told NBC 7...

    A newcomer has arrived at the White House, provoking fierce turf battles and carrying out more than one lethal confrontation in broad daylight. But this is no political power struggle; it is nature. A red-tailed hawk is prowling the lush White House lawn and perching just above the second-story window of President Obama’s East Wing residence, lured by a booming population of gray squirrels and undeterred by the harassment of smaller birds that have tried in vain to displace it. The hawk has captivated those who frequent the White House, from visitors to journalists to staff members, some of them...

    Qinetiq has marked the 40th anniversary of the Hawker Siddeley (now BAE Systems) Hawk jet trainer's first flight by commissioning in-flight pictures of pre-production aircraft XX154 – which remains in use with the Empire Test Pilots’ School.

Having subsequently served with experimental and research units, XX154 is now owned by Qinetiq and operated from the UK Ministry of Defence's Boscombe Down site in Wiltshire. It continues to be flown as a test pilot...

It was watching me and making little please feed me noises, momma has booted it out of the pantry.Before you ask, why shouldn't I take a camera to the doctors office? I would have missed some good stuff!

    I just recevied an email with some stunning photos depicting the daily struggle of life in the animal world. I share them here because while this kind of thing must happen millions of times every day across the globe, rarely do we ever get to see it up close. To me, that makes this an odd thing to see. The outcome is also pretty amazing considering the circumstances. I don't know the origin of the photos, or the veracity of the story, but the photos don't lie and are pretty stunning. Here's the tale included in the email I received:...
