Bird’s-eye view: Hawk stares into traffic camera over Minnesota highway

A hawk eager to get a bird's eye view of a highway was caught staring into a traffic camera in Minneapolis.

Minnesota Department of Transportation (MNDOT) shared a video on Tuesday (21 November) of a curious wide-eyed red-tailed hawk looking directly into the lens as cars pass by on the I-94 near Portland Avenue behind it.

"Well, this is awkward...," the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources commented on a Facebook post.

The birds are often seen perched on traffic lights throughout the Twin Cities metro area, an ornithologist told MPR News.
