I was driving home from sonic today when off to the side of the road in a feild I saw a hawk circling around about 30ft off the ground. Right from under it a piegeon or a dove took off. The hawk closed its wings and dove! The bird only got about 5 ft. and then WAM! It was like a line backer nailing an old lady!

Was watching one of the Birddogs Forever shows on line. This one had a guy who hunts pheasants with two setters and a hawk! Can't remember what kind of hawk but it was large. Anyway the dogs would go on point and hold until the Hawk could gain enough height. Then the bird was flushed and the hawk dove in for the kill. Quite interesting. 8)

This past fall while my parents were on vacation I was taking care of his pigeons. As I was getting ready to let them out I looked out the back window and saw a hawk sitting in a tree immediately behind the pigeon coop. The birds didn't get to stretch their wings that day.

if you keep pigeons long enough and fly them once in a while, the hawks will find you.... and your pigeons.

Where I work used to be a wetland area. Was here in the summer saw a hawk take a pigion out of the air. Some gals started yelling at the hawk he lets the pigion go hawk catches it again and off he goes with it. :) I said nothing like fresh meat :)

Recently I had 2 hawks in my coop after I was gone for a week. I came home to a Red Tail and a Falcon in my coop. They killed 3 of my best birds. Total they killed 6 birds. Even though they killed those 3 good ones they weren't so special that I needed to kill the predator. It was sure neat though to see those birds up close. They are allot smaller than they appear.

If you plan on raising pigeons you have to plan on casualties. I have had hawks try and take out my birds just out of the remote releasers.

FWIW
