My heart breaks for you. I have a quaker and I used to be able to sit on my front porch, take walks with him in yard and just enjoy outdoors with him NOT being caged. Then the hawks and perigrines came to town. I had one very close call with my quaker and that was it. Now I will never take him out without being in in a cage first.

It is so hard to believe that it can happen with us standing there but I know it can. If the owner is unaware of the hawks being in the area their birds stands no chance because the hawk WILL come down whether you're there or not and it is so frightening to the human also. I am so sorry this happened to your beloved Judy, so sorry.

Thanks for telling of your horrid accident so others will become aware how serious a problem this truly is.
Sincerely, PJ Legg
