Peregrine Falcons vs. Red-tailed Hawk

I had the great fortune to witness the Peregrines of Broadway Bridge patroling their territory in defense against the Red-tailed Hawks of Inwood Hill Park. Here the female flys in to the scrape and calls the male in alarm. They then launch a concerted attack against the hawk, first one flying in level, then the second diving from above in a breath-taking sequence! Nature never ceases to amaze.
