Hawks & Songbirds
Advice on Hawks.
Get a coach's whistle and give the hawk a strong blast. Works well. We do not want to hurt any of the raptors, but we also want to protect the song birds in the garden.
Several years ago the hawks were taking baby ostriches. The fences were tall enough that I could string fish line back and forth across the top of the pen and then tied bright ribbons on it. They tried one more time, a lot of the fish line was in a big tangle. No hawk was present and no babies were missing. I replaced the line and tied more ribbons on it and it never happened again. Depending on their situation this may or may not be a solution for the song birds.
