I saw my first Coopers Hawk today... I went outside to work on the deck and the "Neighborhood Watch" of resident crows and squirrels were flipping their lids. My currently free-ranging bantams were in one of their favorite hiding spaces under the grill cover. I look over the fence into the neighbor's yard and there is a Coopers Hawk being mobbed by crows and squirrels. I put the biddies (what we call the two bantams) into their coop for the rest of the day. The new chickens that are quarantined in the run were hiding too. I can't wait until I get the new run finished and I don't have to worry about the biddies. For now, I will deal with the plugged gutters and missing food that the squirrels and crows leave me with as long as they keep doing such a good job of dealing with the hawks. This is the third time, this season, that the crows have driven off a hawk while I watched. The upside is that Coopers Hawks are pretty and I'm glad I got to see one without loosing a chicken.
