PORT ORANGE — Six people have been attacked outside a central Florida library this week by a pair of hawks nesting in a nearby tree.

County spokesman Dave Byron said three patrons of Port Orange Regional Library were scratched on the head, but no one was hospitalized.
The Daytona Beach News-Journal reports the hawks were trying to protect what appears to be three babies in the nest.
