Naturally, this event has prompted many questions, the most obvious of which being: How on Earth did a Cooperís Hawk get into the Main Reading Room of the Library of Congress?! I canít answer that. But I can provide a few Qís followed by a few Aís.

I think this might be a Northern Goshawk.

I thought the same thing, Runmede! I didn't want to argue with the blogger, but s/he said they had confirmation.

It's mentioned down in the comments, too. I took a Birds of Prey class through the USDA/Audubon Naturalist class. I had to study these birds. We took a field trip to Cape May, NJ and to Hawk Mountain, PA.

The Raptor was lured into a trap baited with Starlings, It was safely released into the wild by MD raptor rescue and the broken window was repaired. Glad that the end was a good one.
