Bird with prey

Juvenile Red Tailed Hawk with squirrel

I heard birds making a racket in the front yard yesterday.  Turns out a hawk was perched nearby holding a dead squirrel in its talons.  A Red Winged Blackbird had the audacity to loudly squawk and fly within inches of the hawk's head.  It was perhaps complaining about this bird of prey's actions and warning all nearby of its presence.

Hats off to all who risk life and limb to protect others and warn of impending danger.
