So, I know that other predators will remember where the chickens are and return until they are eaten-like a racoon that comes every night. Do hawks have this same memory? Yesterday, we had our first run in with a hawk. It was awful. The girls did exactly what they were supposed to do-they took shelter in the thick brush in the woods after it swooped down and grabbed a few feathers. :/ The hawk was startled when my husband pulled into the driveway and flew up to a tree. Then began the LONG stalking. It perched itself above where my girls were, and the one closest to danger was really balking up a storm. I was out there, but I couldn't get the hawk to go away. IT would fly from one tree to another, just watching and waiting for my girls to expose themselves or for me to go away. So my Q's are... Will this hawk return today, knowing the girls are there? Will it 'remember?' They hid in some super thick brush...if this happens again, and I am not outside...will that be enough? Will the hawk land in the woods to attack, or do they need an open space? The ground cover here is so thick I cannot get in there. I could hear the girls but couldn't see most of them. Is this a good protection or will that hawk find a way onto the woods floor and walk into that brush? Thanks!
