Watch This Hawk Investigate A Weather Camera

Yes Mr. Hawk, you’re right to complain about the heat.

A weather camera high up on the 1011 News building looks over downtown Lincoln, the state capital of Nebraska. As this video shows, a very inquisitive hawk may occasionally interrupt the view.

The hawk, eyes bulging, seems to take issue with the camera, or is maybe just complaining to the folks at 1011 about the weather. (Taking the train in this heat is bad enough, imagine flying with all those feathers?)

In the video the marvelous bird of prey stays fixated on the camera for almost a minute, arching its head and giving the lens a sideways glance. It even takes a little nibble. The weather team in Lincoln now has a new friend.
