Barred Owl vs. Immature Red-tailed Hawk

You always hear that owls and hawks don't interact much, but a young Red-tailed Hawk didn't get the message.  It's been harassing the Barred Owl that's in Central Park for the past few weeks.

Tonight the Barred Owl must have had enough.  The Red-tailed Hawk tried to roost in a tree the Barred Owl used to use during the day, so the Barred Owl flew out early and chased the Red-tail away.
