Barred Owl battles Red-shouldered Hawk

The drama begins when a Red-shouldered Hawk perched too close to Barred Owl's nest in Sarasota, Florida.   Fearing it was looking for food, the owl glared at the hawk, flew after it, provoking a violent air-battle which left the owl's talons full of feathers.   Photographer Marina Scarr, who photographed the encounter, reported that neither bird was injured.   The battle included a mid-air collision (bottom photo).
