Two hawks are stalking our hens. I've learned to run outside and look to the trees when the girls start cackling in distress. I usually find a hawk, or sometimes two sitting in a tree. One is large, one is small. A male and his mate? More likely a parent and a young one.
Here is the small hawk sitting on the tree house above the hen's run.
a little too close for comfort there...
Just leave the girls alone, okay?
