1108_0924 Swainson's Hawk attacks eagle

    Newer Older

    Now almost directly overhead, the second hawk is on its tail while the eagle once again scans to keep watch on the first falcon. Overwhelmed, outmatched by the superior speed and maneuverability of the two Swainson's hawks, this golden eagle evidently just wants to get away! The last I saw, all three birds disappeared over the crest of a hill. The outcome will forever be unknown.

      Whoa, high drama....great sequence. It's hard not to root for the underdog...but in this case it sounds like goliath was under attack.
