Elena Martinez, a Malden-based graphic designer, snapped a photo of this bird of prey last week. The red-tailed hawk was spotted in the bushes in front of the First Baptist Church (located at Salem and Main streets) with what appeared to be a light-furred fallen prey on the grass. –photo by Elena Martinez
