Physical Description: Photograph

Abstract: I saw a hawk inside Library East when I entered the building. The foyer is a large open area with some side overhead lamps. The critter was perched on one, like a statue. I could not believe my eyes. Slowly, while getting out my phone, I moved forward. The statue came to life and flew up to the 2nd floor! Quietly I went up the steps. There it was again. And again, it flew to the landing between the 2nd and 3rd floors. I called the University Police Department and asked for assistance. Within 7 minutes, two officers arrived. Carefully they walked up to the scared bird. The poor thing had already crashed into walls and ledges several times. My husband, who works in Lib. East, brought out his extra T-shirt. The officers managed to scoop up the frightened bird and brought him/her outside. We did not know if the youngster had any injuries. After a few necessary photo moments, the hawk was placed on a low brick wall. After about 2 seconds, he flew to a branch in a nearby tree. Mission Accomplished! Thank you to the officers of the University of Florida Police Department, we have a successful Rescue. On the campus, in and outside Library East, Smathers Library, University of Florida.
