I was looking for Robins in the park when suddenly a lot of noise above my head. Two Buzzards soaring and the whole Crow colony attacking them and chasing them away. My settings were all wrong for this. From shooting Robins in dark conditions I went to bright conditions and as I'm always struggling for shutter speed, I'm trained to increase shutter speed when there's suddenly more light. But it was so light that I could have lowered ISO speed a full stop as well as stop down the lens some and still have enough speed to capture the action. And on top of it all, I underexposed a bit and had to apply a bit of noise reduction on the birds. vmad
So, definitely not the best of shots, but I thought fun enough to post a couple.

The crow's head was not in the focal zone, but I include the shot to show that they're birds with an rather impressive wingspan.

Levina, you have written almost word for word what happened to me yesterday as well. My shots were not great either but fun all the same and yes this crow was huge.

That shot definitely qualifies as a fun shot, sidknee. It's amazing how big these crows are when compared to a buzzard. I looked it up and the difference between the wingspan of a crow and a buzzard can be as little as 13 cm!

Thank you, Robert. Yes, you would call them Hawks.

Crows are relentless and fearless when it comes to chasing Buzzards away. There were dozens in the sky this time, one after another diving down, attacking and the Buzzards getting really annoyed and verbal. Quite a spectacle.

That would have been fun to watch! Wish I coulda been there too :-)

I see smaller birds like red winged blackbirds terrorizing the osprey around here. It's amazing to watch. This guy was dive bombing the osprey from all directions

Oh, definitely, other birds do this as well. Especially during breeding season. From Swallows to Lapwings to Gulls, they will try to chase a predator away!
Here's a couple of oldies where a Northern Lapwing is going after a Grey Heron. This was in the countryside and the Heron was about to land on breeding grounds.
