Red-Tailed Hawk vs. Bald Eagle (Flickr)

This is an attempt to blog directly from Flickr using Flickr's built in 'Blog This' icon.

This and another 2 images show a juvenile Red-tailed Hawk interacting with a sub-adult Bald Eagle. I've never seen a photo like this with both raptors in the same frame.

One time I watched as an adult Red-tailed Hawk harassed a juvenile Bald Eagle as it passed through the RT's territory. The territory belonged to the south end of Central Park nesting Red-tailed Hawks.

Here are links to all 3 images [BE-RT1], [BE-RT2] & [BE-RT3].
