While heading to work this week I spot this Red-Shouldered Hawk having breakfast in a bean field.
I turned around to take his pic when he decided he did not want my company and flew up on top of this light pole carrying breakfast with him.

Nice pictures and captions. Mockingbirds have no fear, I see them go after anything. :) Just yesterday I saw one giving chase to a Crow.

Thanks, I Love watching then harass the local cats, it does my heart prooud, but this was the first time I had seen one really go after a Hawk.

I thought he was pretty brazen! But it was fun to watch.

What I would really like to see happen "I have to admit it" would be for the hawk just once! "and please lord let me catch it on camera" just turn on a mockingbird or crow and tear him apart!!
