You may have heard about Harvey the Hawk who freaked out in the hurricane, took shelter in a guys cab and wouldnt leave. So the guy decided to take him home till he could find a shelter to rehab him. Everyone thought this a sweet story of a bird bonding with his rescuer -- until politics intruded, as they always do with the left. Apparently the good Samaritan had some, um, non-politically incorrect decorating tastes.
Harvey the Hawk visits his benefactors well stocked bar no wonder he has to go to rehab
Jazz Shaw has the rest of the story:
But as occasionally happens in the midst of such tragedy, small rays of light occasionally shine through. A dramatic rescue of an at-risk child. A stranger opening up their home to victims of the wrath of nature. And then there was this guy
A cab driver named William Bruso returned to his vehicle and found a Coopers hawk sitting in the passenger seat. The bird refused to leave and go back out into the storm. Bruso took pity on the animal and decided to see if he could give it shelter. The resulting short video quickly went viral.
And heres Harvey hanging out at the bar:
Thats just adorable, isnt it? Man and raptor, waiting out the worst of the storm in a dry, safe room. So what could go wrong? Well, this is the internet, so obviously something had to. If you go back and replay that second video again, check out the few frames around the 45 second mark where the camera swings around to the other side of the room. There on the wall there is a Confederate flag.
Well, you can guess the rest: the cab driver is a villain, no: worse than Hitler! Sheeze, I remember when the term knee jerk liberal was just a meme. Now its embedded code. Do liberals have to take the fun out of everything? Rhetorical question.
Still, Harvey and William is a sweet story of man and animal, in this case bird, bonding. How could any sane person not love that? I leave you with another man/bird bonding story that may just be the best ever: a condor returns to visit the man who saved it when it fell from its nest as a baby.
Some things simply need no explanation, no matter how amazing they seem. Now get out there and work on that bonding thing. A word of caution though, youll have better luck with a bird than a liberal they dont have as many litmus tests, never bother with virtue signaling and are no where near as judgmental.

Oh deary me! I’m getting a case of the vapors.
It’s OK! Harvey is a good boy. Would never hurt anyone. He is an aspiring raptor!
I saw what you did there! He’s just turning his life around. .
...he was just turning his life around. He dindu nuffin.
Have some Bean-o.
So a hawk flies into this guy’s cab to get out of the weather.
Then, the hawk goes with the guy to check out his place?
I throw the baloney flag on this story.
Did the hawk talk to him, too?
“Nice place, but you need some help decorating. My nest had much better wall decorations.”
It is interesting that animals who are predators sometimes display more “pet like” behaviors than animals who are normally the pray.
Good one. :)
There were also the predictable comments about how the rescuer should have just let ‘Nature take its course’, and that it would have been far more ‘humane’.
I know I’m going to Hell for saying so, but every time I hear someone make a statement like that, I hope they get some horrible, deadly (but treatable) disease, and have doctors refuse to save them, instead saying: “We feel it’s far more humane to let Nature take its course.”
"I've got this nice print of dogs sitting around a table playing poker. Makes it real homey!"
Some people do have what I call the St. Francis of Assisi Affect. They have an easy bond with animals, all animals who are near that person, even reptiles. It cannot be explained by the regular sciences.
Apparently Harvey the Hawk already owns a plantation, a hundred slaves and drinks mint julep every afternoon.
I would have put a Butler’s uniform on him
