BRADENTON, Florida (WFLA) -- Residents keep looking at the sky in Cortez Villas, a retirement community in Bradenton, Florida.
They have been harassed by two red-shouldered hawks that built a nest in their quiet community on 36th Avenue West. People out for a stroll use umbrellas to protect themselves from the birds, which swoop down and dive-bomb the unsuspecting.
The nest is in Beverly Brasgalla's front yard. She says she's had four run-ins with the birds. The first attack happened when she went outside to get the newspaper.
"It felt like I was hit with a basketball," Brasgalla said.
Experts with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission say this is temporary behavior for the birds.
It takes about eight weeks for the hawk babies to become full-grown and leave the nest.
In the meantime, neighbors have put up signs to warn pedestrians.
