I tell ya Dave, Between my wife of two years, my 15 month old son, and my pigeon hotel (as my wife calls it), my life is full of questions!Ahay! wee grasshopper! (sorry, always wanted to use that phrase) that could be part of it, i would still look at your landing area.(to exposed, to easy for the hawks, ect.) I am a total muck at keeping my birds hungry! As i have said, I LOVE to watch them eat! Dave
My birds fly, fly and fly some more. I think that the pigeons and the hawks are conditioning each other in a negative way. The hawk knows not to attack until the pigeon is vulnerable (landing). The pigeon learns this, and doesnt want to trap. I have a feeling that Ill get the rest back in the morning. This has happened before.Not to be eaten...I agree...
They are probably too fat to fly or maybe they don't have much energy to fly...
