Hawks vs. Owl

April 06, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

A mated pair of Red-shouldered Hawks have established their territory at the north end of the park. Yesterday they were observed attacking a larger bird in one of the trees on the edge of the open field. They were soon joined by three American Crows. After ten minutes of attacking, the larger bird, a Great Horned Owl, was dislodged from the tree and flew off towards the creek as it was chased by the crows. Red-shouldered Hawks will drive Great Horned Owls out of their territory during breeding due to the fact the owls will steal the nestlings from the hawk's nest.
