    I have one female homer who lives in my apartment. We are good friends. She is outside of her cage most the day inside my room, bathroom and kitchen. She spends a lot of time by the window and so I think that she wants to fly around outside. When i bring her outside, I am worried about hawks and...

    At least 2-3 times a week I have a hawk sitting on my aviary trying to get to the birds. I don't know if its the same one or others coming through. You would think the same one would give up by now not getting any reward. Hoping to fly the birds soon but not when hawks are all over. How is the...

    And he looks hungry. Chased him out of the garden to another yard, but he wouldn't leave. It was around 3:00 pm and he probably hadn't gotten lucky yet. My poor song birds were all diving into the shrubbery.

    Everything has been going great with my birds with the exception of having one of my German Owl youngsters taken by a hawk. It was the first time a hawk ever took one of my birds right in front of my face. I tried to save the GO as the hawk chased it around the yard ( which is about 1 and a half...

    Hey guys, This morning while I was eating breakfast, my neighbor rang my doorbell and told me to lock up my pigeons if I had them open. I asked him why and he simply told me to look up. When I did, I was terrified to see a huge group of red tailed hawks circling my neighborhood. Since they...

    I have been thinking of ways to deal with hawks that attack roller pigeons. I read an article from 2004 from the UK that said they were planning to use a spray and "something to make the meat taste bad" to deter raptor attacks on racing pigeons. I have emailed the Royal Pigeon Racing Club and am...
