Kingbird takes on hawk

All photos by Geraldo Grassi
Here's an impressive series of photos taken by Geraldo Grassi in El Salvador.   Senor Grassi was training his hawk when a Western Kingbird arrived on the scene to drive off the hawk, which was too close to the kingbird's nest.   The smaller bird's bravery (or recklessness) was wasted on the hawk, which ignored the kingbird and kept its eyes on the training dummy on the ground.   The hawk's strike was successful, despite appearing somewhat awkward.
