Harris Hawk

To most, this stunning bird is something to admire. To me, it’s a dangerous predator looking to feast on my flock of chickens.  The chicken yard is now protected with aviary netting and that’s why this fella looks a little put out!

You wouldn’t think this rather small bird could kill a chicken, unfortunately I’ve learned the hard way, Harris Hawks don’t hunt alone. Family team members are just about 40 feet away on a power line waiting for their opportunity and signal to make the kill.
