Last evening I watched a Cooper's hawk being chased by a pair of hummingbirds. Yep, a big raptor with a twenty inch wingspan was being bullied by two bird-imps that could both sit comfortably in a teacup. It was an interesting sight. I laughed out loud.
Cooper's hawks are known for preying on other birds - pigeons, doves, quail etc., being skilled enough to take them in mid-air. Hummingbirds are well known for their irascibility, lack of patience and general truculent nature. The altercation was probably territorial in nature, but it was fun speculating what might have caused the dust-up. Alas, they disappeared from view before any resolution was observed. Nature is red in both and claw (and, it appears, needle-like nectar-sipping bills).
Although this post is apropos to nothing, Here's what I really want to say:
Give thanks. Hug a loved one. Mentor a child. Wear your mask. Stay well.
