Feathered food fight in Norway

Hawks against Jays
A sparrowhawk (left above) is seen harassing a Eurasian Jay in Dalen, Norway.   Photographer Roy Mangersnes captured this very dramatic image.   He said the sparrowhawks descend on the grounds where jays are fed by a friend every year.   He went on to say that as many 8 to 10 hawks charge the jays who dodge them as if dodging bullets, and that they seem to be very good at it.
