Had a Coopers hawk looking for birds today. Around the bird feeder. The birds went under the pick up truck. He followed them. Could see him going up in o the frame to catch them Could not get a good pic. Must have been 10 mins under there. Scared him off. Springs tomorrow. Make a Goshawk trap.

Yes. More than enough. Hard to hit when moving though.
This one was easy. First this year. Bait was Scotish sardines.

when I have ybs out I always have my air rifle loaded and leant against the loft, I know it usually happens too fast to react, but theres always a first time it may be a bit slower, or be a sitting target.......

always be prepared I say..... Suspect Suspect

No, the kitty. Put the body in the field. Gone this morning. Coyote? Hawk? Snowed so no tracks.
