Hawk patrolling Winter Hill neighborhood

hawkphotoOh, rats!

Kate Castle, who lives on the corner of Medford and Central streets in Winter Hill, snapped this photo of a hawk on patrol. “There was a huge hawk sitting on my fence with a foot long rat in its claws it had just caught,” she says, adding that she spotted the big bird while letting out her pup.

“Score one for the hawks of Somerville … helping the residents out by taking out the rats,” she continues.
