one of my favorite birds just got attacked by a huge hawk, and I am feeling really bad right now. It was all my fault because I released my pigeon when I saw the hawk, because usually my birds fly way quicker than the hawk but unfortunately the hawk probably got my bird. What happened was that I saw the hawk land in a tree in the distance after i released five of my pigeons. I took my young checkered white flight bird and i threw him into the sky, but he unfortunately landed in the tree and the hawk was on her wings with in a second and I saw her fly toward my bird. I made noises so that my bird would be frightened to take off and so he did right over our house but by that time I was able to run over to our house the hawk was on our road with my bird in its claws. I ran towards the hawk and my bird and the hawk released my bird, and he took off, but just like that she was right after him again and they both flew down the street. Im sure he got taken down and killed., My five flying birds came back in and trapped extremely fast. I am feeling quit horrible right now about the loss because I raised that young bird for over seven months now and just like that it died...I am thinking about refraining from flying my birds now because it is very dangerous, especially during takeoff and landing.
