Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night can keep a mail courier from their route.
But, as it turns out, hawks can.
Driving the news: USPS has suspended mail service for weeks in a portion of the Travis Heights neighborhood because of a particularly territorial hawk and its fledglings, postal service officials told Axios on Friday.
What’s happening: Residents and mail carriers near Milam Place and Kenwood Avenue have spent weeks dodging the bird as it protects its young during nesting season.
- Residents at roughly 20 homes must pick up their mail at a nearby post office until it’s safe for mail carriers to resume their route, according to USPS spokesperson Becky Hernandez.
- It’s one of several recent hawk attacks in Central Texas.
