On Friday afternoon, The Beacon left the climate strike at city hall early to walk over to the county courthouse for the meeting between county and city officials about the convention center expansion. It’s been a contentious issue.

Along the way, a Cooper’s hawk was spotted with a rock dove in tow.

The meeting among the city and county officials was way more in the spirt of a true and equal partnership than the encounter between the hawk and the dove. More on that later. For now, here’s what wildlife looks like in downtown Bloomington, Indiana.
