Garland TX backyard
We watched this juvenile hawk learn to hunt in our backyard environment. When he first came, he perched and screeched for food - and all his prey flew and ran away. Quickly he learned to come silently and hang out patiently on the fence. He captured a sparrow, and then worked up to a dove. He was unsuccessful when he tried to go for our alpha male squirrel. After that, when he would land on the fence the squirrels would chase him off. After being chased by them a couple times he stopped visiting.
