I had just pulled into the driveway in Brampton when a large bird flew over my hood and grabbed another bird from the lawn near my car.

There was a flurry of feathers and by the time I grabbed my phone I managed a few pics.

It was a vicious attack and there were a lot of flying feathers.

I am familiar with the Red Tailed Hawks in the neighbourhood, but didn't recognize this one.

I was amazed by the precision attack.

Thanks for your report and pictures - I will also post this on our facebook page.
