Birds and drones

The ability of chooks to stampede and kill themselves when they think a hawk is threatening is amazing, of course with every one having their own drone expect mass casualties of other easily spooked birds and animals.

The only chooks we have lost due to hawks are the ones they have caught- none lost when they were all (over 50 before a fox killed about half of them) running for cover as a Sparrowhawk flies over every now and then.
We had a couple of clowns in a helicopter flying very low in circles over our place a couple of years ago, with someone hanging out the side taking photos. I was never able to find out who it was, but it sure freaked out the chooks- but fortunately none died in that incident either.
