I felt the same way a few weeks ago. As I biked along one of my neighborhood streets, I heard this odd sound, so I ducked my head expecting a cluster of bees to zoom by. Looking up, I saw a drone hovering.

I shuddered, thinking that I should be able to enjoy my privacy of a leisurely evening bike ride.

The hawk had a similar feeling, and reacted in an awesome way!

Check out the hawk’s way of getting rid of a drone:
