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)...

> Hi Tweeters,

> it a RedTail - maybe a juvie?


> Dark brown, yellow eyes the rusty streaking and on breast. Couldn't see

> the belly band or tail from above, but some striping on the tail. Flew too

> fast to check out the pegagium (Sorry Bud! - I'm trying!! ;-)).


> We have seen a Red-tail circling on occasion so it must have been taking a

> rest. It flew south after it had taken enough harassment.


> Always exciting to see a raptor.
