FACE-OFF: RED-SHOULDERED HAWK VS NANDAY PARAKEETS, CELERY FIELDS, SARASOTA, FL
This was an interesting scene to watch. The Red-shouldered Hawk perched on top of the pole where the Nanday Parakeets had their nest. Awhile later two Nanday Parakeets showed up and perched on the wire. They repeatedly flew away and came back. It looks like they were trying to lure the hawk from the area of the nest. Eventually the hawk flew away to perch somewhere else.
