Description

I was out trying to photograph this Red-Tailed Hawk in flight, and at one point while it was perched atop this tree, a mocking bird began harassing it 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.
