Wonderful series! Hawks always look so fierce to me, and to see one in a bird bath is priceless! He looks so bedraggled, ruining my image of what I like to think of as a noble bird.

Well, the doves have to eat, and the hawk has to eat. In a sense, you are using birdseed as dove bait. If there is a birdhawk around, the doves will attract it, but you have to decide thenif you are using the doves as hawk bait, and if so, is itworth the price. That was notour intention, but it is an unintended consequence.

As to how I managed it, see the first thread for a blow-by-blow discription:
