Lucky Day

post #1 of 3

My white Homers were getting shack happy. I let them out for a fly and a

peregrine falcon (I am guessing) took after them. It isolated one of them and was right on his tail at last sight and I though the bird was a goner.

Some how he escaped and they all just returned to the coop. No more loft flying for a few weeks.

I am some impressed with this Belgium blood line.:woot

Well done on the part of the bird.  Many years ago after several weeks of heavy snow pack I decided to fly my birds.  Almost immediately 3 red tails of all things started trying to catch the birds.  There were hawks and pigeons crashing through the pines in back of my house.  None got caught or even injured, but it surely spooked them.  The red tails must have been really hungry to even try.  They have little chance of catching a pigeon in flight.

 

I only ever witnessed one peregrine attack.  The hawk drove a pigeon out of the kit, and she made a dive for the loft with the hawk in hot pursuit.  Pigeon hit a mesh fence and the hawk hit several feet away.  Pigeon ran under the loft, and I scared the hawk away.  I got the pigeon out from under the loft and inside.  The remainder of the kit went sky high, and I patiently waited for them to return.  While I was waiting, the hawk returned and ran under the loft looking for the pigeon.  Persistent creatures they are for sure.

I may have not of been a peregrine. All I know for sure it was not much bigger than my pigeon. Usually a peregrine attacks from above in a devastating dive which spell curtains for it's prey. These two were in a dog fight at 60 mile an hour plus I am guessing. Luckily my pigeon took evasive maneuvers that some how paid off.
