Description

I captured this mocking bird harassing a Red Tailed Hawk recently in a maneuver that is called "mobbing", where the smaller bird (or birds) swoop and dash at larger perched or flying birds. They typically do this to drive away potential predators from their breeding territory or a nest with eggs or young.
