Bird Fight

On the morning of Sunday, May 22, 2017, I traveled on bicycle from the north end of Manteo to the small area of Roanoke Island called Skyco. While in Skyco, I saw a tree with a hawk’s nest on top (picture 1) and shortly after seeing it, a couple smaller birds swooped in and tried to attack the nest and hawk. The hawk never really got the upper hand, but it did a good job of luring the smaller birds away from its nest. It appears in picture 3 that a part of the hawk’s wing is missing.
