Yesterday afternoon my 12 year old came running in the house crying and said that a hawk had one of his chicks. He was outside with them while they were free ranging. When he tried to scare the hawk away, it just flew up in a tree with the chick. When I got out there to see what I could do the hawk dropped the chick and flew away. The poor baby landed at my son's feet. We tried to save the chick but couldn't. Needless to say my son was very upset and couldn't even help me bury it, something he has had no trouble with in the past when we have lost little ones before.
