    Wow, this morning as I was working in the barn I heard a huge commotion.
    The rooster was swacking and the hens were bowking and them I heard the crows....cah....cah
    When I made it to were I could see, I saw a hawk retreating into some near by trees with two to three crows all over it. They chased it throw the trees and then out in to a clearing.
    Boy I was so thankful to see those crows!

    MandyH You'll shoot your eye out!

    We have hawks and owls real bad here and they will eat anything that is free ranged for more that 5 minutes. I too saw for the first time the other day, 2 crows flogging the mess out of a big hawk and running him clear out of the area. The only thing I could figure is that the crows have a nest somewhere close and that's why they chased the hawk away. I have never seen that before.
