At the office yesterday, for some reason I glanced up and out the window, and there were two bald eagles out flying over the river here in Redding, being harassed by a red tailed hawk. The hawk would dive at the pair, and then, just like a scene from Marty Stouffer's Wild America, the target eagle would swing around mid flight and they'd go talon to talon.
I had no idea hawks and eagles didn't get along.
Sorta like this, but higher, without the tree:
And crows don't like either hawks or eagles.ReplyDelete
Or Owls for that matter. We've got a nesting pair of Red Shouldered Hawks on the property and they go ballistic at the first sign of a Red Tail.ReplyDelete
Speaking of owls, I like to watch the Southwest Florida Eagle Cam - https://dickpritchettrealestate.com/eagle-feed.htmlReplyDelete
Here is an example of an owl attack:

They're all nest raiders so none like the others.ReplyDelete
