I have posted before that I have a coopers hawk that has been in the neighborhood for a couple years now (at least I think it is the same one) and frequently gets his meal at my wild bird feeder and much to my pleasure it is usually a starling (see my other post on how much I hate those things). Anyway, it was such a beautiful day yesterday I was out raking up the final batch of leaves when I hear my rooster give out the hawk warning call. Then the girls chimed in with their loud warning calls. I saw the coopers hawk on the ground, I stood and watched and my one and only RIR and one and only Egyptian came tearing out of the hedge row wings out, neck feathers out and heads down right at the hawk. He didn't stay long. I probably shouldn't jinx myself but in the two years or so I have seen this hawk and I usually see him every day I am home he has not taken a single chicken nor have I seen him go after them, his sticks are always at the wild birds.
