I was participating in the annual Christmas Count. We were near the Delta counting numerous shore birds. I heard a screech to look up to see a White-tailed Kite chasing a Red-tailed Hawk. The Kite chased the Red-tailed for a few minutes and I was able to get this shot as they passed by. Since it was December, I am guessing the Kite was protecting it’s young or territory. I was amazed because I have never seen this before.
