Two Assassins off of Ship Road

I was taking photographs of an Assassin Bug today in the woods off of ship road, when I heard a bunch of bluejays screaming in the tree above me.

I steppped back to take a look at what the racket was all about and out flew a Cooper's hawk with a bird in his talons.  The hawk flew off to another tree and one of the bluejays came after him, but it was just too darn late.  I think the poor victim was a baby flicker.  (Click photos for better viewing.)
