as i was having lunch in woodinville, my friend and i noticed the exact
same scenario: red tail being chased by the local murder of crows... all
the red tail was trying to do was catch a thermal, and the crows harrassed
him/her into the distance horizontally (and not vertically)...

> Always exciting to see a raptor.
