I report predation of an American Crow (Corvus brachyrhyncos) by a Bald Eagle (Haliaeetus leucocephalus) in Washington state. The crow was attacked and killed while it was chasing a Red-tailed Hawk (Buteo jamaicensis). To the best of my knowledge, this is the first report of a bird of one species killing a bird of a second species that was chasing a bird of a third species.
