    The local hawks are like our unofficial mascots. There are a lot of them, and they command respect.

    methinks its time for us citizens to start buying & training falcons in hawk-ian anti-drone technique, no? only half ):ing.

    I had one of the %&*ing things flying round outside here the other week and they're %&*ing noisy and intrusive.

    So a big up for the bird I say

    Did the hawk get hurt at all? I have not been around these drones -- are the propellers designed to not hurt? Would hate for a hawk to get hurt following it's natural instinct.

    It flew off, but I don't know the videographer so I'm not sure. Looked like he was ok.
