Hawk swoops into Back Bay station

What a strange tern of events: A hawk flew into Back Bay station this morning. Transit Police are keeping an eagle eye on it until the Animal Rescue League can come and get it out. On last report, it was perching on one of the wooden rafters at the top of the station; hopefully, it won't be overcome by diesel fumes.

Police don't know what to do. Animal control is operating with reduced personnel today and they don't know when they will be able to arrive.
With all the pigeons and sparrows to eat in Back Bay Station, the hawk has no incentive to leave.

Just a thought. When it is done doing what it wants to do, it will leave.

I want to thank the Transit Police officer at Back Bay station who does a great job keeping his eagle eye on the chicken hawks in the men's room and the station.

My experience is that diesel fumes are heavy, and sink to the bottom of whatever space they're in.

I take the train almost daily from Back Bay to South Station, and from experience I can tell you for at least Tracks 1-3 the fumes are usually stronger in the commuter rail ticket and waiting area than they are on the platforms.

I prefer to wait for the train on the platform, no matter the temperature.

Hope it doesn't fly in the men's room.

A nice perch with a surveillance camera to keep a hawkeye on things during nap time and a Dunkies downstairs for when I'm done napping. Back Bay Bird-o-prey is here to stay! If the going gets tough the turkeys will back me up!
