Corralitas Drive: Hummingbird Takes On Hawk

Photo: Diane Edwardson, October 16, 2011, 9:55 AM.  A Red Tailed Hawk crashed through the trees on the lower part of Corralitas, chased by a Hummingbird.  (Click on photo to enlarge.)

The hawk hung out on a light post on the 2 Freeway (adjacent to Corralitas) and watched as the Hummingbird continued buzzing it.  The way it crashed through the trees, makes me think it's one of the juvenile hawks from this year's nest.
