I have had repeated hawk attacks over the last month. Had a few in a row a few weeks ago......and then let a bunch of roosters out of the rooster pen to help with hawk calls and hadn't had any problems lately. Or so I thought. Lost a bird on Friday or Saturday and the hawk was back again yesterday. I caught it sitting on the ground in the back of my yard, near where the last kill had happened. Two attacks have occurred while I was outside but not near the bird being attacked. However, once I was out there yesterday, it flew off and stayed away. My birds range over a half acre. No way to cover this area and there are way too many birds to lock into a smaller pen to cover. The majority of my attacks have happened in the back portion of the yard, near the treeline. I am wondering if putting scarecrows of sorts out there will help "scare them away". I could put them out on posts and them move them a bit every day or so. Michaels has 5 foot tall scarecrows on sale............they are a harvest decoration so not "scary" looking, but maybe that will be enough? If I bought 3 or 4 of those and moved them around the yard. I was also thinking about something that moves. Windmill type decoration, windsock, flag, etc. I know people talk about stringing up fishing line or netting....can't do that, way too large of a space. Would a random string of cds across a few feet of the yard actually make a difference or just a waste of time?
