We have had a hawk make a few unsuccessul passes at our flock of 22. Well, yesterday, he was successfull. Wife called me at work and said that he had made a kill and that she could not shoo him away, she even blasted him with the water hose. I came home and walked directly up to the hawk and put the poultry net over him. Is this normal that the hawk would be so unafraid of us? It appears to be an immature red tail. It still has white mottles on it's back and no red markings yet. So, I harrassed it for a while and then laid him up into the electronet fencing and watched him get several shocks. When I released him he was a little wobbly on his feet, but within a few minutes he recovered and hopped into the woods and then flew off. I was fortunate to be able to give him some negative reinforcement. Do you think he will return? If he does, there is nothing left that I could do at this point to dissuade him. Guess what , my wife just called and his is back, did not make a kill but he is trying. Is this normal?
