Wildlife at Penn State 4

Joyce Furfaro watched as this young red-tailed hawk waited patiently for a terrified chipmunk that was hiding under the trash receptacle near Kern Building on Penn State's University Park campus on June 9, 2008. The hawk alternated between circling around the trash can, peeking underneath and flapping its wings, and sitting atop the can at his sentry post, all the while ignoring passers-by. Furfaro reports that she watched for a while, but eventually left the area, not knowing the ultimate outcome of the stand-off.
