Hi Lorraine

I have observed this behavior through the years here as well, with a 
Red-shouldered Hawk and the local Crows. At my compost pile, they both share, 
but the Crows usually stay their distance. I see a symbiotic relationship with 
these two birds. The Hawk will often follow the Crows, and when they find animal 
food such as a dead animal, the Hawk will often chase the Crows off and mantle 
it for itself. The balance of nature i suppose.
