Sept 30, 2009: Hitchhawker
Tiny bird's incredible piggyback ride on hawk
Look out, it's the hitchhawker!

Naw, times are tough, so that hawk is just making a few bucks moonlighting as a taxi.

An excellent start to a Turducken type dish...

I had no idea hawks were such sissies.

Well I guess that could be one fearless little kingbird. I mean how does one get to be king if they aren't a little bit bad ass?

It's good to be the king(bird)

I've often seen little birds flying chasing away crows and hawks that are much bigger than they are. I assumed the bigger birds got into the little birds' territories. Good photo.

Increiable pics, Bruce ... that hawk must get so pissed off by that.

To me that second one looks photoshopped.
ZenGum Monday Nov 2 07:07 AM
I'm getting slow. It's not a king bird, it's a hawker harrier.

The defense against this, is the raptor suddenly rolling over, and grabbing the offending attacker in it's talons.
