Why not the City? Urban Hawk Walk

Dr. Christian Hunold, a political scientist at Drexel University, is a dedicated wildlife photographer and wrote a paper, Why not the City?, about the hawks of Center City Philadelphia, the humans who watch and love them, and what all that says about how we regard wild animals in urban settings. Tony and Billy go hawk watching with Christian Hunold around Logan Circle in the heart of Philadelphia. As soon as you’re done listening, head on over to the Field Guides podcast for their own urban hawk episode looking at Cooper’s hawks!
