Do Birds Look Up?

Do Birds Look Up?  According to bajadreamer they do and he has photographic evidence.  Here’s what he said:

Shortly after this image was taken a Red-winged Hawk floated over the pond. A RWH is not much of a danger to an adult teal, but none the less, all the ducks exploded into flight; the hawk floated away and back the ducks came.
