Now living in Bangor, Maine, he resided for a while in Bethesda, Maryland, where from an upper-story apartment window he often saw the neighborhood crows chase red-tailed and red-shouldered hawks — but rather than injure the outmaneuvered raptors, the crows only pulled at their quarry’s feathers, as if counting coup. @9brandon
