I sat in my car watching this brave little mockingbird torment the hawk sitting on that light post for quite awhile. In this shot, it appears the mockingbird is flying away, but it didn't give up. It kept coming back and dive bombing until finally the hawk got tired of it and flew off to a tree. Linking with SkyWatch Friday
Ha! At first I thought the hawk was a statue. Funny shot - definitely made me smile. :)
I did too Halcyon! Excellent!
they are feisty things, aren't they? :)
Hawks and mockingbirds! I am so tired of pigeons and gulls...
I bet there was a nest somewhere nearby that the mockingbird was protecting.
What a great shot, Lois!! The birds have the perfect backdrop!! Thanks for the smile to start my day!!
Very brave of the mockingbird.
they are the chihauas (however you spell it) of the bird world!
Great catch, Lois!
Great shot! I've seen raptors tormented by smaller birds before, usually crows. I guess it's sitting (nonchalantly, I might add) too close to a nest.
I guess that mockingbird thought maybe it was as big and powerful as the hawk. Persistence often wins and the mockingbird proved it!
Word to the wise--- don't tempt Mother Nature. It could be DINNER time soon.
Great shot, Lois!
