Nesting hawk attacks passing students

Residents of Mahoney/Pearson Residential Colleges are advised to steer clear of the area behind the Mahoney/Pearson dining hall. A Red-shouldered Hawk species is nesting behind the cafeteria and has already attacked three people, resulting in lacerations.

Because the bird is a protected species, they cannot be immediately removed. A security officer has been posted outside the area, and UM is working with the Miami Museum of Science to safely relocate the hawks.

Students may contact the UM Police Department, 305-284-6666, with any concerns.
