My name is Linda, just joined this forum after reading that someone had a Red-tail Hawk as a pet, and was also feeding wildlife. The person who posted this was angry that their chickens were being eaten. She only was going to report the feeding of the Osprey, I believe, I have lost that page and can't find it! At any rate be Osprey or another species, it is not illegal to feed a hawk, but it is illegal to feed an Osprey..it is also illegal by law to keep the hawk as a pet without the proper license. If this person sees this post, I hope this did not occur way back somewhere, this is my first foray into this forum specifically to try to give the poster this information. I so hope they did report this person, they are breaking the law.
