I have a hawk that lives in the trees around here.



For the last few weeks I have been listening to something like this all day long.



What is the purpose? Mating call?



It is getting fucking irritating.

Fledglings learning to fly.  Mating was in the spring.



Hawks are cool, there are a nesting pair with two that just got their adult feathers in my  neighborhood.

I used to be over run with ticks in our yard and on our dogs till a pair of hawks moved in and started getting rid of our large population of grey squirrels

Emo hawks. It's a phase, they'll grow out of it.

I live out in the sticks and have various raptors around including a bald eagle that lives in a clump of trees in the middle of a nearby farm field.  I'd damn sure rather listen to them than the sirens, booming bass from cars, and road noise when I lived in the suburbs.

Because you touch yourself.

Just go crank up music louder so you can't hear them, I'm surer the neighbors would appreciate hearing that better than that damned shrill cry of a hawk.

This. The red-tails have been fledging here for the past week or so. The calls enable the parents to keep track of the youngsters.

Same reason T-rex cried..

Darwin fucked them out of the joys of fapping. All the required equipment, no way to reach it.

We have a small population of red-tails here.  They help control the rodent population.  But it's entertaining to watch them being dive-bombed by blue jays, who seem to hate hawks.
