Hawk Alert!

This Peregrine Falcon was being shown at a Birds of Prey show on Grouse Mountain.

BUT ...

There was a wild red-tailed hawk who had flown onto a pole right at the show. Unfortunately, the show had to be stopped because the remaining birds were either this size or smaller. It sure was interesting to see this falcon puff all up in the neck. He was certainly well aware of the red-tailed hawk's watching eyes. They did not fly him - they were concerned he would go after the red-tailed hawk, but would loose any confrontation.
