I saw a Bald Eagle carrying a Black Duck being pursued by a gull many years ago at Chincoteague NWR.

I've seen Herring gulls do this to an RT over the Branford River.  It was wild!  I might have a picture someplace of the action.

> I have seen Crows 'mobbing' a hawk many times. But the other morning I witnessed a single Gull chasing down a Red-tailed Hawk for quit a distance. The Gull was crying out and diving at the Hawk. Has anyone ever seen this behavior before?
