Forrester employee enjoys red tail hawk sightings

photo 2-2Around 1:45pm on Monday, April 21, Jimmy Hall and Anjali Lai of Forrester Research were walking along the dirt path from CDP through the Alewife Reserve, when they spotted a hawk perched on a tree branch only 15 ft. from the ground. After a few minutes of surveying the scene, the hawk launched into flight, swooped down until it grazed the tall grasses, and flew up to land on the branch of another tree.
Anjali Lai is a Community Manager at Forrester Research and has been at the company for over three years. She lives in downtown Boston, but looks forward to observing and photographing the scenic beauty of the Alewife Reserve on her daily commutes to and from the office.
Jimmy Hall is a Sr. Data Advisor at Forrester Research, and finds the greenery and natural beauty of the Alewife Reserve a refreshing alternative to the city.
