Pic of the Week: We May not Have a Hawk..

Share this post:

but we do have owls!  She may not be flying around the Science & Business Reading Room like the lovely lady recently captured in the Main Reading Room, but we like her.

She  sits with a companion in the back of the reading room and is pictured here sporting a pair of 3-D glasses.

  1. Well well it`s very good hope this owl want`s
    to come and fetch me and dont just sit there

  2. We so enjoyed the story of the “Flying Cooper’s Hawk” in the reading room. We are also relieved that ‘she’ will be RTD to the outside to once again fly the skies of Capitol Hill! Maybe the ‘wise owl’ could loan ‘her’ the glasses. Those 3-D’s might help ‘her’ when pursuing those pigeons on the roof!

  3. Just what my home library needs to add to the intellectual tone. Perhaps you could add reproduction owls to the selections in your gift shop?

  4. Anne – I would love if they did that! I do think that many years ago they may have used them for book ends but I have never seen them.

    I will say that one of this years Christmas ornaments was an owl detail from this building. This is the photo of the detail (not the ornament) that they used.
