I was watching this Red-Shouldered Hawk in a tree at Discovery Park. A runner came down the path and out of the tree came this Red-Shouldered Hawk. I snapped a couple of pictures. The runner was very upset and wondered what he did wrong. I pointed to the Red-shouldered Nest that was behind me with another Red-shouldered Hawk already sitting in it. Clearly this Red-shouldered Hawk was attacking the runner to protect the nest.
