    Thanks! The pigeons wouldn't have been prey for a red tail. Red tails hunt small mammals on the ground, rabbits, squirrels, mice.... Mine would ignore pheasants running on the ground.....The local pigeon guy hated me and gave me the stink eye every time he saw me...but my hawk was no threat to his pigeons. Falcons, though, would've been another story.

    Well, I did not know that! You learn something every day.

    Thanks Peter. You can add snakes to your list. This one just finished making a meal of one.

    I’m no expert, but that looks to me like a Red-shouldered Hawk, not a Red-tailed.

    You could be right, David! We don't see those around here.

    They are becoming more common farther north in New England now Peter. I never saw them when I was growing up in northern New Hampshire, but I’m always looking very carefully now in Western Mass, where they are increasingly common.
