The Bird Dance

Continuing from the last posting of the Pearland Eagles, the hawk must have seen the eagle above and that is when the dance began with hard turns, dives, dips and climbs. People, this hawk was in “deep sh!t”. In actuality, the hawk was trying to “get out of Dodge”. The hawk was going nuts knowing there was trouble up above. The eagle was able to out dive, maneuver as well as out think the hawk. I believe the eagle was making a conscious effort not to hurt the hawk but to give him a heck of a scare and let him know not to intrude in its territory. After the close encounter the hawk flew into the sunset and the eagle returned towards the nest.
