Bird caught on camera hitching a ride on hawk

A red-winged blackbird was caught in a photo hitching a ride on a red-tailed hawk that Mike White spotted Tuesday. 

White says he was visiting DeSoto and Boyer ChuteNational #WildlifeRefuge in #Nebraskaand #Iowa. 

Experts say territorial blackbirds (among others) can be seen dive-bombing raptors, but this is definitely something you don't see every day. 

The U.S. Department of the Interior shared the photo taken by White on their Instagram page.
