Did the hawk turn into a fox, and then a different style fox?

It had probably been circling waiting to pounce on the dead animal that Gene keeps on his head !

I do like seeing this human side to Gene. Loved how it ignored his tapping on the glass.

Harris' Hawk I think, which is what Europeans would class as a buzzard rather than a hawk...Americans use the term "hawk" pretty indiscriminately for a lot of types of birds of prey.

Latin name Parabuteo Unicinctus. Which from the Swedish name would translate to "cactus buzzard", so you're right.

They're strictly native to the Americas, but you see them a lot in films and TV shows set in medieval Europe because they're so tame and calm compared to most birds of prey. It's easier to stick one of them on the wrist of a actor who's probably terrified of the thing rather than use something historically accurate that's likely to go nuts and try to bite the actor's face off :)

It's a bit self-aggrandizing. A bird standing around doing nothing for a while isn't exactly a must-see event that needs to be broadcast. This kind of makes Paul's tweets seem downright vital.

News? No. Interesting? I think so.

This "bird" is a hawk. Not many people live in areas where seeing one is an everyday occurrence.

Did the hawk tell him that after The End Of The Road Tour he hopes to see the 50th anniversary tour?

I liked it. And it was way better than a typical Paul tweet.
