Notes:
While driving down the highway, spotted a red-tailed hawk sitting on a rise near the cliff's edge. I pulled over, then observed that the hawk was engaged in combat (atempted feeding) with an adult gopher snake. They disappeared over the ridge, so I approached for a closer look. As I approached the hawk flew away, and I found the gopher snake still there, extremely agitated but apparently unhurt.
