Neighbor Jeff Zeth sent in this photo of a red tail hawk he says has been visiting him on East 8th Street for the last couple of weeks. “I named him Attila; the well-known barbarian was said to have the same steely, fearless gaze,” he says.

Have you seen Attila around? If you do, don’t try to feed or pet him!

  1. I’ve seen Attila. I’m right next door. GlAd you sent the pic in Jeff. That’s a great one. You see him better than I do. Everyone I showed the pics too were amazed. This Hawk is a badass!!! Incredible looking and so cool to have around. Better than a watchdog.
