There are often 30-60+ Red-tailed Hawks on the Game Farm fence and the nearby big tree on cold winter days—"licking their chops.". What is amazing is that the hawks don't decimate the pheasant population and only take a few. Candace On Sun, Feb 14, 2016 at 7:29 PM, Peter

Wow. So what is the explanation for so many red tails in one location.is this a migration event..or simply an over-abundance of prey in this particular locale? Or something else? Thanks Pete Sar On 2/14/2016 3:05 PM, Laura Stenzler wrote: Hi, I checked out the Cornell game farm

Hi, I checked out the Cornell game farm on Stevenson and game farm roads this afternoon at 3 PM. I easily counted 62 Redtailed Hawks on the fences and in the trees. In the main big tree there were 22 hawks alone. Also loads of Starlings, eating the grain. Laura Laura Stenzler
