I walked up on this Red-tailed Hawk watching this squirrel and just knew that I was fixing to see this hawk catching his lunch. The Fox squirrel was either teasing the hawk or it was doing this for my benefit because it was running underneath the telephone pole the hawk was perched on. At one time it even ran part way up the pole.
I saw that the hawk was getting ready to swoop down toward the squirrel so I got ready.
For some reason the Red-tailed Hawk just flew toward the trees and made a low pass and then turned and flew back to the telephone pole. It paid no attention to the squirrel. The Fox squirrel finally left the area after putting on a show for the hawk and I.
