Bob Ranney sent me this youtube video, showing the pursuit of a hawk for a squirrel. Although they aren't seen in the same frame and it probably is a composite, I think you will find it interesting to watch. In the end, I felt a little sorry for the hungry hawk.
On the other hand, the hawks do well in Bull Creek valley. We accidentally decapitated a wood rat during the charity timber harvest recently. It had the misfortune of creating a home in a large hollow log on the ground where we were cutting and splitting firewood. It had stuffed the log with acorns and some wood shavings for a bed. If you are squeamish or getting ready to eat, skip the pictures.
