Hawk attacks Breezy Point City Council member
While hanging bird feeders on his deck Thursday, June 26, Breezy Point City Council member Otto Schmid was taken by surprise when a hawk swooped down and sunk its talons into his scalp.
"I had no idea that thing was zeroing in on me," he said. "It didn't start screeching until it was about six inches from my head."
The bird's talons left puncture marks and a long scratch along his entire scalp.
