I was surprised to see this Red Shouldered Hawk on the ground near reeds at lakeside. The Red-Winged Blackbirds were quite agitated at his presence. I looked for a nest or nests in the reeds but, didn't see any. Eventually, the Red Shouldered Hawk decided to depart. A couple of the Blackbirds chased after, dived at and, pecked at him as he flew away. This was one battle the fierce hawk did not win.
