Dora gets mobbed

At sunset Thursday evening, I found Dora the hawk taking a break atop the cross at St Brigid's on Avenue B.  As soon as she landed, she was mobbed by an angry blue jay.

The jay dove at her about a hundred times, but Dora kept her cool.

After about 15 minutes, the jay calmed down and Dora was able to stretch.

Then it was time for a flight around the park before returning to the nest for the night.
