Bald Eagle

Bald eagle diving on Harlan's red-tailed hawk. As I was walking toward the eagle perched in a tree it flew back into the trees and then up in pursuit of a Harlan's red-tailed hawk. I don't know if the eagle, facing away from me, flew because I was getting too close or because it saw the hawk. I had seen both the eagle and the hawk in the area before. In any case the eagle then attacked the hawk as the following pictures show before returning to perch in the trees. I did not see an eagle nest in the area.
