Shrike vs Kestrel vs Meadowlarks

This morning we came across an interesting interaction of three bird species near Windermere. There were two Eastern Meadowlarks singing in a field. One flew over and attacked the other on the ground. It was quite the skirmish until an American Kestrel was attracted to the commotion and swooped down low over them. They all flew up into some small trees. A Northern Shrike, which had been perched nearby, suddenly flew right at the Kestrel, flushing it from its perch! Then all was peaceful again. One of the Meadowlarks went back to singing and the Shrike joined in with its own song. A happy ending on a beautiful day.
