Great film. Clearly the squirrel is teasing the young hawks. Taking a real 
chance, however. A squirrel was taken off the wires behind my house a week ago.

The last few weeks have been full of wild activity in our backyard, as a
nest of red tailed hawks up the hill has now fledged and are spending a
tremendous amount of time around our bird feeders and on the trees in the
yard. I captured this interaction between a couple of juvenile hawks and a
young squirrel the other day. Can any animal behaviorists give me more
information on what seems to be going on?

As of today, these hawks are now successfully catching their own food on
their own.
