A word of caution to all who free range or have runs that are not protected on top. If you get a Goshawk or pair of them to visit your area and they determine there is fowl for the taking, they will not leave for the Winter.
They are a Northern bird and will stay in the Northland all winter if they can find food. Even though I try to be vigilant, I have lost many birds to those flying wolves. Once they set up housekeeping they may establish permanent residence. They may nest in your area and predation over the whole year can be a problem.
No word from Ralphie. I fear that the Togo Sasquatch community may have done grave harm to him. His main problem is his kind nature and desire to solve animosity with Diplomacy.
My motto is " speak softly but carry a big gun".
