So, here was this poor Red Tailed Hawk just soaring around minding his own business.

Next thing you know a Northern Harrier decided that he didn’t like Red in his area. What an aerial battle ensued. The Harrier continued to dive and attack the RTH while he worked to avoid the harassment. In shot #3 you can see the RTH has his head turned 180 to try to see the Harrier attacking from above. Classic dogfight!
