It depends on your location, but usually winter is deadly for pigeons because those hawks are very hungry with less food(other birds) available to them. I have homers and crosses and during winter and late winter, they get most of my birds. They are more persistent during those times. I also have these resident hawks that live near me and they wreck havoc in my birds. It seemed to have calmed down a bit this spring because I notice that these hawks are catching other birds and leaving my birds alone. Rollers are slower so a hawk can get them better than homers. A smart, conditioned, well-trained rollers may be able to survive though. Some people take their chances. Some don't. I did and I suffered from it. Because hawks migrate, some people just wait until they migrated out from you area.
