Just saw a scene out my office window fitting of a Scooby Doo episode.

Glanced something big passing by and looked up to see a Turkey Vulture 
stooping past the window with a Cooper's Hawk in hot pursuit.  

As soon as it passed out of sight to stage left, I'm imagining the 
Cooper's Hawk saying "Zoinks!" because just a few seconds later it was 
beating a hasty retreat in the opposite direction now being pursued 
itself by a grackle and a couple of swallows (Tree I think but didn't get 
a great look).
