one might wonder how hawks ever catch anything to eat cos they so loudly (or proudly) announce their presence. it just occurred to us that besides signaling each other their location and conditions, their screeching mostly serves to frighten the birds and small animals below (squirrel, rabbit etc) so that they scatter, making it easier for the hawks (as you can see at the end when it folds its wings up into a dive) to see something to pick out for lunch or in this case brunch.
