Two ravens harassing a hawk.

I was birding at Valhalla Memorial Park when I noticed two ravens aggressively harassing a Red-tailed hawk. The hawk had to flip over in the midair - to face her attackers, ready to protect herself. There were no injuries and the three birds had parted their ways in a matter of seconds.
