Forgive the HHB for snoozing on the signing later on Friday night, but even the most tenacious Hawks watchers leave the nest for a while, and the HHB is on vacation until the 18th---a usually safe time to take a break, as most Bird Watchers know.

For now, however, we leave the Hawks Nation with a trailer from another famous vacationing soul, the inimitable Axel Foley, who the Beverly Hills Cops know is "ON VACATION!"
