Small Brewers Blackbirds generally don’t take kindly to any kind of hawk flying by their nesting areas. The problem is that this hawk is hunting around her own nest. She’s not going to abandon her young ‘uns, so she just ignores the daily harassment.
The blackbird rode on the hawk’s back for a short while and then flew away, to come and fight another day.
