    I was re-reading this whole thread, just because it's all so cool.

    Tom, if that WAS Minerva, and she came to you, what would you have done then?

    And wasn't Minerva a BIG girl who was a bully who BASHED into other hawks and stole their kill? Something of a WITCH...but substitute a B for the W ;)?

    If she had flown down to me or the lure, I would have fed her and let her fly away as she wished.

    And yes, she was a huge mean bully. This bird was doing her best to drive my bird from the territory, which is exactly what Minerva did when that little male wild redtail was trying to hunt the rabbits that I was stirring up. Instead of hunting, Minerva just kept flying pole to pole displacing the little male. This bird was doing the exact same thing in the exact same way to Tacoma.
