Dive Bomb

Cute little female American Kestrel, right?

Big, tough, Red-tailed Hawk, right?

Not, hardly - here she comes....

A tight pass, the youngster Red-tail has its head turned sideways. The approach had been that close.

She banked and considered a second pass, but opted instead to relocate to another tree and call vehemently at her young adversary.

A real head-scratcher for this giant of a child! I guess there are still a few things for a hawk to figure out.

The judges weren't all that impressed and called it a draw.
