So this guy/gal has been hanging around for about a year now. Every time I spot it in one of our trees, I invariably find my free ranging chickens foraging under that tree. It is a sharp shinned, so probably not a threat to any but my smallest Serama, but she is there with the bigger chickens tempting fate anyway. Are the chickens for some reason attracted to this small hawk? Trying to keep their friends close and enemies closer? Or are they just that dumb? I would think any bird of prey would send them running for the cover of our huge barn, but just the opposite is happening. This guy/gal doesn't really worry me, but we have red tails show up once in a while and I'd rather my chickens not become too complacent and think all these guys are as harmless as this one. My guineas on the other hand will send the visitor packing as soon as they spot it.
