depends on how big your dog is....If you are home you can scare it away, if not just make sure it can't get in the loft. otherwise not much else you can do. hope it does'nt stay.So the neighbor knocks on the door last night. He said all day long there was a red tail hawk on top my piegon loft.
So what can I do to scare it away?
Also will my dog help keep it away or will it go after my dog?
wont the hawk get suspicsues that the owl is just sitting in the same spot day after day if you do this you will have to move the owl each day before the hawk arrivesHello there colbyjack, probably you can get a plastic owl (which looks real) and put it on top of your loft and then remove it when the hawk is gone so that they won't get used to it and realize it's just a toy... also you can put a convex mirror on top of your loft...I hope this helps or probably wait for other suggestions...
yes, you can move it around and take it down some days, but I have heard they are not much of a help. Do you fly your birds? If not if he can not get into the loft just shoo him away.wont the hawk get suspicsues that the owl is just sitting in the same spot day after day if you do this you will have to move the owl each day before the hawk arrives
Hawks eat snakes, you will have to keep your birds locked up untill you think he has moved on, that is about all you can do.The birds are young just got them. Haven't flown them yet. But don't want to keep the birds locked cause of the hawk. How bout a rubber snake?
It's sad to say but spirit is right. There's not much you can do to the hawk, they're proctected by law. They are also fierce hunters and will wait all day to get your birds. Keep your birds locked up or make them hawk aware, you'll eventually loose some to that hawk when you let them out because mr. hawk knows there's food for him there and he'll wait for the right moment to strike at your birds. It sucks but its bound to happen. If you keep pigeons you'll have hawk problems. Some have it worse than others but it seems that your situation is pretty bad.... you have the hawk roosting on top of your loft!Hawks eat snakes, you will have to keep your birds locked up untill you think he has moved on, that is about all you can do.
