Ever wonder why you have bird activity at your feeders and then all of a sudden there is not a bird in sight? Could be you have this guy visiting your backyard!
Hawks are daunting to other birds as they sometimes prey upon them. However, most of the time they visit your yard because they have spied a rodent.
Very rarely do they actually visit the bird feeder, but on this particular day I guess hunting wasn’t going so well and he decided birdseed would have to do.
Hawks are beautiful birds and have a way of making soaring in the sky so peaceful looking. However, they are detrimental to birdwatching as your backyard birds will likely hide away when they are around.
