The Peregrin Falcon is beautiful and it was interesting what the gal had to say.
I would rather not have had to watch him eating what appeared to be something feathered while she was talking though. Very sad

Was that the Red tailed Hawk making that sound? The reason I ask is because it seemed like he had his beak closed some of the time when the screetch/scream sound was going on. Interesting.

We have Sharp Shinned Hawks around here. They seem to like going after the little doves. Very sad

I'm sure glad they turned off the camera right before the Cooper's Hawk landed. Birds of Prey 44767
I was just able to stop the video.

That was quite a video from Rhode Island. Birds of Prey 142829
I wonder if that one falcon was a youngster. He sure had a young looking face.

I realize they are predators of the pigeon, but they are beautiful birds.

They are and we have to remember that they aren't killing for the fun of it but to survive.

I agree with you Robin. I posted these videos so members will be able to identify one that may happen through their yard.

No worries. Smile
Perhaps he had to eat at a certain time. I have NO idea

Great videos Charis. We get the coopers and the sharp shin, and now the sparrow hawk in our yard. Aren't we lucky? And that call they make, I hear that sometimes when I'm out in the yard, and I know it's a hawk, but can't always find it. They're pretty good hiders. But that call, I hate when I hear it. Means they're hunting our yard or nearby.

Yes they are good at hiding. I had one hiding in a small Dogwood tree just this past week. The only reason I knew it was there is because a Crow was screaming at her. I'm glad I was alerted because only a short distance away, a feral Pigeon couple is nesting. They are on wooden eggs, of course. I sure don't want to need that name thread.

The sharp shinned that frequents around here, perches in the tree next door.

I can always tell when something is somewhere outside that shound't be. Malio will begin his owl impersonation. At that point all the aviary guys come to attention and turn into statues, not moving a feather.

I've seen them do this while they were eating. Malio will sound the 'alarm' and they all immediately stop eating and become as still and quiet as church mice.

I know. I entered the loft one day, and they were all just standing there like little statues. All of a sudden, I heard a thump! There had been a hawk slamming up against the window screen trying to get in. The poor little things looked so scared. I went outside to see what the thump was, and it was a very large coopers hawk. They are beautiful birds, but not in my yard.

Right next door I see a lot of crows, and you can hear them calling often, but they never come into my yard. We have lots of trees and shrubs and it is very woodsy over here. I wonder if they don't like it so woodsy and with so many trees?

I don't know about the woodsey thing. My yard has lots of trees too.

Then why do you suppose they are usually over there, but don't venture here? I mean, I know why they are probably over there, as she leaves food out for the feral cats that live in the woods across from her, and even the gulls fly around over there. Amazing how they are able to find it. But you'd think they would branch out and come to my yard. It's weird.
