Redtail Hawk Hits The Courts

Jul. 12, 2012

“Tennis, anyone?” might be the question that was on the mind of this wayward redtail hawk that was perched on one of the benches at the Mountain Lake Park Tennis Club courts on Monday. The bird had apparently sustained some kind of injury to its wing and was having difficulty flying.

MLP town secretary Judy Paugh contacted officials from the Maryland Department of Natural Resources, who came to the courts, successfully corralled the bird, and have sent it to rehabilitation experts who will attempt to nurse it back to health before returning it to the wild. Photo courtesy

A Quiet Moment Along The Savage


This river’s name does not seem appropriate for this particular scene. The Savage River was anything but savage when captured in this photograph by artist Michael Petersheim. The shot is part of an exhibit of his work now on display at the Gallery Shop in downtown Oakland.

“The Nature of Summer” display is being hosted by the Garrett County Arts Council, which will also host a reception for Petersheim at the gallery on April 13 from 5 to 7 p.m. The exhibit will be on display until May 18 and is open during normal Gallery Shop hours of 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Saturday. Petersheim is a native of western Maryland and grew up on farm just south of Oakland. His love of photography developed in 2004, he said, while living and studying at the University of Queensland in Australia. See story on today’s arts page.
