It all kind of makes one wonder who the aggressor really is

The red winged blackbird is the aggressor, for sure! :threaten:  Trying to drive the bird of prey away from a nest maybe?  or maybe the predator is eating a loved one? ;)  Still, I understand what you mean--seems like being the carnivore would put you outside of such harassment LOL!

A falcon and a red wing black bird?

I think the raptor is a Red Tailed Hawk, but I am not good at identifying many raptors.  The other bird is indeed a Red Winged Blackbird.

No really, the hawk had a ground squirrel, and was just being harassed during supper by the black bird.
