    That home invasion didn't turn out well for the BG.

    Great video!

    Hawk failed to recognize the pecking order.

    I like how after the eagle kills it, it seems to pause to think about what the hawk attempted, get angry all over again, and proceeds to pluck it.

    Wow. Had no idea that Red Tailed Hawks would raid the nests of Bald Eagles.

    I learned something today. Don't mess with an Eagle if you are a Red Tail.

    Hawk drops in for a free lunch, eagle insists it stays for dinner.

    +1. It saw the hawk coming. Good SA all the way, before and after.

    It's just like having a pizza delivered. Except, if my analogy was spot on, you'd have to subdue the pizza man.
    It is surely true that you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink. Nor can you make them grateful for your efforts.
