Every year, a hawk lurks around the Henry W. Bloch School of Management’s courtyard. And every year, Sandra Bretz, assistant to the dean at the School, misses a Kodak moment because she fails to have her camera handy. This year, she’d been watching the hawk for several weeks, plotting her chance to snap a picture. When she was visiting a co-worker on the second floor of the Bloch School, she noticed her target just outside the window. “I couldn’t believe it,” Bretz says. “I ran down to my office, grabbed my camera and flew up the outside stairs to get a shot.” According to the MU Extension office, this red-tailed hawk is a juvenile, approximately 2 years old.
