Brooklyn's Nature Channel.

Sitting outside enjoying the Summer Solstice, sun tea and a book, listening to the birds. I was thinking the mockingbirds were being extra loud and obnoxious but they are very territorial now that their babies are here - then I looked up. HOLY CRAP. ran inside, camera, shoot. dang. They have dive bombed the cat outside but this was crazy. The hawk didn't acknowledge the little mocker at all, not even as she nipped her back. The hawk flew away drifting over the hood with the mock in attack all the way.

Today's lesson = don't mess with a mockingbird.
