I saw a small bird taking a similar ride on the back of a red tail hawk this past summer in central New York. I didn't have a camera at the time to capture the moment. Great photo.

I to have seen a small bird try to ride the back of a hawk here in Thorton Co in May. As I was driving I could not stop see if it did ride. At the time I did not know that they would do that and now I know what it was trying to do .

While playing golf I saw a small sparrow sitting on the back of a red tail hawk and there was another small sparrow flying just above the hawk. The birds were about 15' high & 30' away. Amazing!!!
