I love birds of prey. Hawks, Eagles and Owls are just cool to me. I look for them when I drive down the highway. Someday I am going to own a nice camera with a powerful zoom lens so I can photograph them without spooking them. It is difficult to get close to them. This video is about a close encounter with a hawk who is in a life and death struggle with a bull snake ... and the snake was winning.

Scott Adams and his buddies were going fishing when they found this red tail hawk on the road with a bull snake wrapped around it. Without intervention the hawk was certainly going to loose it's life. Watch what happens when Scott steps in to help the hawk.
