Red-tailed Hawks and Golden Eagle clash at Coyote Hills

Charlotte Allen <c.allen@...>

This afternoon I saw a pair of Red-tailed Hawks stage an ariel attack
on a Golden Eagle and drive it away from the canyon they were
hunting. This on the Bayview Trail just north of Glider Hill. I saw
the Eagle again about a third of a mile further south on the trail,
hunting another canyon. The Eagle looked to be about twice the size
of the hawks, so I was impressed by their nerve in diving it from
above, even though they did have it outnumbered.
