Walking back to the bookstore I was alerted by people standing around that there were two red-tailed hawks in a tree after several squirrels. The hawks spotted their nest and attacked. This one squirrel actually got luckier then the photo implies. He ran down from the tree, the hawk swooped but got him by only the tail and dropped him. Still this is a hard shot to get and it is actually one I thought I would never have an opportunity to get. I turned on it just in time to get this. After this the hawks chased a few other squirrels one of which stayed in the tree and seemed pretty good at not getting spotted. They were patient but then a crow came in there and attacked the hawks and I believe their hunt was ruined after that.
