But an unexpected attack lies ahead
When an impressive pair of Red-tailed Hawks chose to nest in the same tree as a couple of tiny Kingbirds, you'd have thought the huge birds of prey would be undisturbed. But the tiny Kingbirds didn't hesitate in attacking one of the hawks, as the bird of prey tried to land with a huge gopher snake in it's talons.
