According to The Verge, the guy operating this particular quadrocpter was Christopher Schmidt, who was flying it in Magazine Beach Park in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
Rather than trying to engage in aerial combat with the hawk, Schmidt was sensible enough to power down the props on the machine, allowing it to come back to earth relatively safely.
