Swainson’s Hawk under siege

All this female Swainson’s Hawk wanted to do was take in the sunrise and enjoy a quiet morning. A Western Kingbird whose nest was nearby, did not care to have company however. Here, the hawk moves to a different perch, all the while being dive-bombed by the little bird. Kingbirds may be little but they can be quite aggressive and have no fear of hawks or eagles.
