Blackbird Hitches Ride On Back Of Hawk

Here’s one way to get around in the sky. The Department of the Interior put this picture on Instagram of a Red-winged Blackbird hitching a ride on the back of a Red-Tailed Hawk.

The picture was taken in the National Wildlife refuge in Nebraska and Iowa.

Blackbirds are known for dive-bombing, but being a passenger is unusual.
