Default Mother Nature at Her Best!

They have learned to adapt to a world over taken by humans. It's a beautifull site to see one of these birds of prey take a pigdon in flight, see feathers fly from the hit. They are found in most in citys with tall buildings and an abundance of ( flying rats }...

Beautiful birds and very necessary in the balance of nature. We had a bunch of hawks at Ft Mac in Atlanta and they kept the rodent population in check...

I was in a golf tournament last Friday. On the fifth hole we are ready to Tee off when a good size Hawk(?) came diving out of the sky into the lake next to the fairway. He missed on the strike, but climbed again to say 100ft then dove again. He dove into the water three times with no luck then moved off. That was the best part of the tournament.

Yup. Some of the wine vineyards up here build nests to attract them. They eat the pest birds that eat the grapes.

Nice pics! I had the fun of watching some kind of hawk or BOP take down a pigeon in midair one day, while walking to get lunch downtown (the only place intown with a building over 3 stories). It was awesome. Saw a similar incident one evening in the yard; immediately counted my cats.

He was sitting on top of my building this morning giving me the evil eye.
