I was on Hamilton Street around 7:00 p.m. tonight (Sat.) between Broad and 
Patterson looking to change lanes when I saw a hawk about two feet from the 
ground in a parking lot with wings spread, I think about to grab a critter of 
some sort.  My passenger thought I didn't see a car (which I did) and we were 
out of view of the hawk.  I think I've seen a hawk just a few blocks from there 
near the community center on Thompson.

My hawk sighting came after a trip to Staunton and the Frontier Culture Museum 
where I saw a nest of barn swallows in the Irish barn.  Three other nests were

  P.S. I wrote earlier asking about possible residents of a nest in the side of 
my neighbor's house.  We finally decided it was sparrows as had been proposed 
on the list.
