    A couple of small birds built a nest in a cedar tree overlooking the parking lot of my apartment building. They eggs hatched this week, and a crow has decided that baby bird would be mighty tasty. He was perched on the telephone line waiting for mama and papa to clear the nest, she could have a nice lunch.

    Papa and mama are about 1/3 the size of the crow, but they have spent the last 10 minutes dive bombing the crow, who doesn't like the attention and Tells them what he thinks every time they attack.


    It looks like the crow has decided it will be better to find his lunch elsewhere. Dad is now the one perched on the wire where the crow was.

    Ever watch smaller small birds harass a big hawk? Quite a show.
