Pigeon lunch

I didn't get enough sleep last night; I over-prioritized my Computational Geometry assignment relative to being awake, so didn't get to bed until after 5:00a. So after Biomedical Ethics, I decided to bike back to my dorm, skip Stats, and get some extra sleep.

On the way back, I heard the flapping of wings and an agonized "SQWALK!". A hawk of some form had just caught a pigeon for dinner. I do feel some sympathy for the pigeon, but I'm more moved by how inherently cool it is to see a hawk catching lunch. There was something of a rain of small, grey feathers as the hawk took its kill to a nearby tree, looking rather proud as I passed by on my bike.

I didn't even know we had hawks near this campus!
