I had a red shouldered hawk patrolling my yard this afternoon. It would circle and call, circle and call, dive a little, then circle and call some more. Every once in a while I'd hear an answering hawk from over in the woods. This went on for about 2 hours, my chickens were out in their run the whole time but they kept running for cover (so that's good). I'm just wondering what the heck this bird was doing? I'm in southeastern Ohio. Could they be teaching their little ones to fly, it seems late in the year for that but I'm no expert. Anyone have an opinion? Thanks in advance.
