squirrelhawk

We were entertained by this event on the morning of July 23 at our rural east Bloomington home. The encounter lasted about fifteen minutes, and included at least three squirrels. It seemed that the squirrels were defending their territory and had no real fear of the bird. It was comical to watch the hawk dive down from its perch and badly miss its target only to be attacked from behind by a charging squirrel. It had totally lost its element of surprise. This happened at least a half dozen times before a group of crows came in and chased the bird back across the field
