“Hawk Limited”, Hackney: tattered cypher

“Hawk Limited” burglar alarm, Hackney • This tattered old bird is the only actual hawk in the “hawkish birds” section, and the best drawing too, doubtless some random bit of clip-art. I reckon it depicts a falcon, as hawk isn’t a species, but a mere generic cypher representing all birds of prey except owls. Which makes the hawk the panther of the bird world. • Spotted: Mare Street, Hackney, London, E8, England, 2010 • Politics: In the Labour constituency of Hackney South and Shoreditch
