Re: OT - bird drama


We are overrun by starlings. I wish a hawk would take up residence here. One that specializes in starlings & squirrels. We have a few hummingbirds & chickadees, but very few robins or doves since there are so many starlings. We do have a pair or more of woodpeckers that visit off & on all winter, eating walnuts off the ground. ----- Original Message ----- From: "Jesse Bell" <justjess01@gmail.com>

Mouse-cicles.  Frozen little morsels for the raptor.....ick.
We will end up taking him to a raptor specialist to make sure his wing heals
properly.  She'll splint it.  She raises mice just for her raptors to eat.

Wow...last night we rescued a Coopers Hawk:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cooper's_Hawk

One of our daughter's is a police dispatcher and got a call from a lady
saying a hawk was in her back yard, injured, and she didn't know what to
do. So, daughter called us. Looks like it was hit by a car - bad enough that it stunned him, and then while he was trying to recoup, something got
a
hold of his wing and broke it...two puncture marks. I guess it was tough
enough to fight off whatever was trying to eat him. The break was not bad and it's fixable. One eye is bloody, from the pressure of being hit, but
still working and it will be O.K. again, eventually.  Poor guy......when
he
gets better we'll release him back where he was.  Such a beautiful bird.
 I
just love them.

It took another 15 minutes but he finally got fed up and took off out

toward
the highway. The blue jays came back and looked pleased w/ themselves.
 I
filled up their peanut dish as a reward for saving my whole flock over
here.  I just wish y'all could have seen it.  It was really something!

There was a big red tailed hawk in my yard.  I was coming around the

corner
out back when a bird went by me w/ the hawk in hot pursuit. I stopped
dead
in my tracks and he veered off and flew into the big tree in the back
corner
of the yard.  That's the tree where my two pair of blue jays nest.
Well,
they started yelling at him and two of them dive bombed him from
behind,
hitting him in the back and the back of the head.  They kept at it
until
he
flew off.  He made a beeline across the street to one of Pat's trees
and
all
four of them followed him over there and now they are doing the same
thing
across the street. It's noisy but hilarious. They're gonna drive him
out
of the neighborhood if it's the last thing they do.  Talk about
fearless!
That would have made a great video.
