As raptors (generic term for birds of prey) hold a unique position at the top of their food chain, they can be used to create a “hostile environment” for pest birds trying to establish themselves in an area e.g football ground warehouse, hospital etc. This is achieved by flying a real hawk around a problem area on a regular basis, the resident pest birds think it part of a hawk’s territory – so they leave! This invokes “fright then flight” reaction as they don’t want to become a prey item.
Depending on the motivation for the pest birds to stay in their chosen area is normally nesting sites or food sources. This can have an effect of how often the hawk is flow in the area, for how long and at what time of day. We do vary flight times as birds don’t get accustomed to seeing the hawks at the same time on the same day.
Here is a bio for our A-Team of bird control hawks.
Honey is the first and oldest member of our flying team. She is a social imprint and basically thinks she is a human and loves to chat to us all the time. She is quite laid back for a Harris hawk and on occasions when very lazy has sat with the pigeons instead of scaring them away! Read HERE the story of when she decided not to come back!
