Why did this bird attack me?

I was walking to work yesterday, along a busy four lane road in our city, and something came up behind me and whap!, hit me hard, right on the head. I look up and see a bird fly past me, up into a tree. On closer examination, it's a hawk sitting there, looking at me. So I say, okay bird, maybe I was in your way or something, and you didn't see me. No harm done. I turn away and continue walking, and a few seconds later, whap!, right on top of the head again, hard. This time I say, BIRD, WHAT IS THE DEAL? I figure something weird was up, so I crossed the street to get away from it. Now I'm pretty paranoid, checking my back every few seconds the rest of the way to work. Fortunately, no further instances.
So what was the issue? Was there a baby close by or something? And I swear that the bird waited until I turned around to hit me again. Is this possible?
