Red-tailed hawk

This red-tailed hawk posed nicely for me - you would think I could take a less blurry photo.

He's been hanging around near our house on and off for the past three days. I like hawks, but since I have an aviary full of colorful morsels, I'd prefer that they hang out somewhere else. More than once, a hawk has landed on our deck railing, then rammed directly into the closed window of the aviary, scaring the bejeezus out of my finches. Yesterday a flock of crows helped me out by chasing him away. I'm sure they were protecting their own interests, not my aviary, but I admired their teamwork and appreciated their help.

I wonder if those window guard decals would help any?
