Owl & Hawk
We were headed out to the car this afternoon when we heard a loud screech. We looked up into one of the big willow trees and saw this owl.
But it wasn’t the owl that had made the noise. It was one of our local hawks.
The hawk seemed very upset to have this intruder in the neighborhood. It circled around the tree screeching. Occasionally it would swoop in and try to attack the owl …
… but the branches on the willow were too thick, and the owl had found a good protected spot in the center. It just sat there rotating its head and staring at the hawk with its big yellow eyes.
Eventually the owl tired of the game and flew off into the woods.
Chris took a short video of the hawk attempting to get at the owl with her phone (sorry for the low quality)
