The Birds Of Paradise: Part 15

Events took a turn for the worse for the Coopers Hawk recently. It was sitting in its favorite place near the bottlebrush tree close by the five birdfeeders. A gang of crows gathered. One crow counted coup on the hawk and the chase began. The crows chased the hawk next door. Then the hawk chased the crows back to my backyard. The crows continued to pursue the hawk in series of attacks from yard to yard until they drove it away. The crows have returned every day. The hawk hasn't been around. Part of the combat is captured on video. It's best appreciated when played at slow speed. (Youtube link here.) Some screenshots are posted below.
