Letter: No feather in your cap for your beastly caption

Posted
To the editor:

The caption accompanying the Stephanie Zollshan photo on B1 of Saturday's Eagle of a hawk flying through trees (Beauty and a beast), was inappropriate since no bird is a beast, in either interpretation.

As a life-long bird lover, the hawk is not my favorite because it kills other birds and makes me wonder why God created it. Which brings to mind a poem by Ogden Nash:

God, in his wisdom, made the fly

And then forgot to tell us why!

Could it be to provide food for birds, including the hawk?
