Downtown aerial battle

Over the intersection of Atlantic Ave and Court Street, an aerial battle was taking place between a RED-TAILED HAWK and what I presumed is a feisty guy, an AMERICAN KESTREL ( usually I would expect an audacious Merlin, but in this case, good to see a Kestrel showing courage)

The lucky observer and reporting it was Dennis Hrehowsik.

So..lately, a Red-tailed versus a Raven,now a Red-tailed versus a Kestrel..whats next ?  Red Bat ? ( judging by body size  decrease)
