Aeriel Assault Team

In our ongoing battle against the invading hoards of rodents and flying rats (pigeons) we have had some help from the air. Various hawks have taken up residence on the fringes of the farm and are working hard on eliminating the rodent and pigeon populations.

(also Holy Terror to my chickens, but they seem to find cover when the hawk does a fly-by)

We also have a pair of Bald Eagles nesting near the river just down the valley from us. They cruse up the valley almost daily, sending everyone screaming for cover. I haven't captured them on film yet, but I'll keep trying.
