i live in mid-TN. it’s a farming community. my 2 neighbors have chickens (cooped). but for the last couple weeks there are 3 huge hawks (chicken i presume) that are circling all 3 of us. they get close enough i can see their eyes! and i go into my kennels until they leave.
i don’t have chickens, but i do have a little 12 lb terrier mix.
i already left a message for TN fish and wildlife, but while i’m waiting,
does anyone have information on the behaviors of these birds?
do they get aggressive? do they usually travel in flocks? will they leave for the winter?
what about laws? are they endangered? if they attack my dog, can i shoot them? and yes i’m keeping her on a leash, but if these birds are coming close enough for me to see their eyes, i don’t think they have any cares about people.
yes, it’s the little dog in my pic i’m worried about.
