There is no evidence of rats and mice at Davis Station. The photo above depicts two furry friends engaged in a playful moment while waiting for the bus to take them to Cambridge.

Fake news!

Clearly the bird is feathered, not furry.

That belongs

in the Urban Bird Portrait Hall of Fame. It looks like a photographic version of something by a 21st-century John James Audubon. Magnificent.

Heh, thanks.

Lucky situation — I was walking with my kids to school and happened to have my camera out, and there were a couple of people with phone cameras out in the midst of everyone going past to the station. Drew my attention, and the kids almost ended up late to school. :)

I wonder if the hawk is available for hire. I could use him at my house to keep the rodent population out. Good boy (or girl)!!!!

Hawks are cool

I was once walking on Cambridge St. when a hawk swooped down between me and a man who was walking towards me, plucked a critter out of a bush, and perched on a street light to enjoy her snack. The guy and I couldn't help but stop to watch and talk about how impressive the hawk was - it was a great shared moment with a stranger.

Hawk Sighting

By on

Once I was waiting for a shuttle near the Cambridgeside Galleria and saw a hawk swoop down and pluck a mouse out of a snowbank with amazing precision. The hawk was an impressive looking bird but also dangerous looking. The talons and beak reminded me of razors.
