Wildlife ~ Mobbing Birds [As I walked to the store], 05/22

There is a term for what I witnessed and captured with my iPhone 6S Plus.

It is called mobbing.

I saw multiple small birds “dive-bomb” the hawk. I am certain it is a Red-tailed Hawk. The top picture in the collage above shows where the hawk was in the tree. The middle picture captures wat appears to be a robin in flight after an attack and the bottom photo is a robin sitting on a branch beneath the hawk. The bird alarm sounds were interesting, as was the experience–a first for me.
