I've never seen it on the ground, but I will often see smaller birds attacking larger birds while flying, and it's not just hawks either. It's called mobbing.

Geese, Roosters, Mocking birds, Crows, Scissortails, Sparrows, ravens, are a few I have experienced attacking hawks both in air and grounded,Personally my goose does some wierd stuff when a hawk is present like Honking,hissing, he also will charge flapping his wings and some kind of wierd vibrating thing he does. I am sure more byc members can add to this list with there experiences
