I have seen a Red-tailed Hawk attack a coot walking on ice, but I have never 
seen one attack a bird in the water.

I have seen a Peregrine stoop on a Shoveler on the water, pick it up and 
carry it a ways and then drop it. The Shoveler then dove under water and 
never resurfaced.

The latter event occurred at Schell Osage W.M.A. J. Kelly Hobbs (Chris' late 
father) and I saw it.
