Small birds can get pretty aggressive when a bird of prey like this swainson’s hawk flies too close to their nesting area. Take this Western kingbird, for example. It is only 9 inches tall, compared to the 19+ inch tall swainson’s. And probably outweighed 15-1. But that doesn’t stop the little kingbird from telling the monster swainson’s where to go.
The power is in the heart. Bye-bye, swainson’s hawk. /Gary
