Hawk takes out Quail in a split second
« on: January 16, 2016, 05:41:01 am »
Just finished throwing out corn for the Quail, Doves and Pheasants. Hawk decides to have dinner too. Poor Quail didn't know what hit him/her. Happened so fast that the only thing left as evidence was feathers.

Wow, damn fast too. We often worry about Hawks taking small pets and the neighbors chickens.

Yeah, that was fast. I have my cameras set  for 10 FPS. I went through the frames one at a time and the hawk was only in 4 frames. Doesn't that mean that the whole attack lasted about half a second?

I know what you mean. A hawk or owl could probably easily take a small dog like a Yorkie.

around here we have large Owls like this guy


who many a friendship with our Golden Retriever Caleb when he discovered the squirrels tormenting him from the bird feeder, at first they thought it would be funny to stand on top of the feeder scolding Caleb then jumping off close to him and making a made dash up a nearby tree. Well Mr Owl saw them escalating their antics to include diving on to his back, so he decided to make a snack of the culprits when they launched their next attack, so as they were about to attack he dived in for lunch. we went from 50 plus squirrels to 2

That looks like one big owl. He/she most likely could easily carry off a small dog but guess that one prefers squirrels.  :)
