[TN-Bird] Cades Cove (Blount County) Harriers and coyote

This afternoon a coyote was hunting in a field past the Dan Lawson Place in  
Cades Cove when three female Northern harriers started harassing it by diving 
at  it and then landing about 20 feet or so in front of it.  This went on for  
about 5 minutes until the coyote went out of sight. The coyote would lunge at 
 the diving bird and rush the one on the ground.
