Hawks in the City

“Hawks in the City” is an award-winning short documentary that reveals life on the edge for two urban red-tailed hawks who built their nest on a window ledge of the Franklin Institute. The film was executive produced by Maggie Burnette Stogner for the Franklin Institute in Philadelphia. “Hawks in the City” won a TIVA Peer Award and was one of two films selected to screen in the 2013 Annapolis Film Festival Environmental Showcase.
