The Hawk who fell in Love with a lady

Upon noticing a pile up of vehicles heading south on Comstock Hill Road, I was startled to see what the fuss was all about.  There, limping in a funny hopping-like way was a felled hawk.  I gazed at the bird and see how and could behold how he as faking it.  Both wings were intact but slightly bent, feigning some type of broken wing problem.  I know this since when a lady made a move to get out of her car, he lurched for an instant in a "fake out" as if he was about to fly off, but instead stayed hopping on the asphalt acting as if he had a wound.  Had to be so he could get attention, from something even better than another bird a real life lady.

I'm wondering what made him feel like he could get away with this.  Some subtle act of nerve--- some nerve to try and trick the superior animal Man into falling for him and even taking him under their wing.
