M ?-ran Huntsman, Spare That Hawk Yes, do spare that large hawk that sits so quietly on an old dead tree or floats on broad wings high above the valley. Spare him for mans own sake, for he's n~tture's balance wheel, a destroyer of more rats in a day than Pmmy may catch in a week. When the first cold weather drives rats and mice in from the fields to our stored grain for a winter of ~at e~ting at ma~'s enpense, then na- ture sends the hawks. Out of the north-land in brave, single shifts, into the south they come to assist us. They fan out . from east to west across Dixie and there are many kinds. Some of these hawks go farther south and some stay here. Of these the large red-tail and other broad winged hawks are our best. Their food is mice, rats, squirrel, s~ftakes and the vicious shrew. Their appetites are vorac- ious, a pair of them having been known to take as many as a thousand mice in a single season. It is thought that some of them mate for life and they do come back to old haunts. One pair of] these red-tails nested in our woods J this year but, so far, we have not i found the nest. We did see them carrying food to their young, how- over, and now occasionally see the young birds. Crows object ~oundly to their presence in the trees but we do not disturb them. Another enstirely beneficial hawk that has but recently, it ~(~enis, taken a liking to Oklahoma prairies is the Swainson. He's a big fellow with a brown band ac- ross his white breast. He's gentle for a hawk and lives well wVch his small neighbors. Some mmall nest in the same tree witn him and the eastern kingbird goes all ou,t to be friendly, even building his nest irnmedi~tely below the big hawk's nest. The Swainson has never been known to attack chickens. His favorite thi-blt Is, of all things, gophers! He also e~tts mice, rats, crickets and grass~hop- perS. One day we were mowing weeds in the pasture when we noticed two young Swainson hawks w~tch- ing us closely from nearby per- simmon trees. As the mower mov- ed slowly along, a couple of r~ts ran ahead of it into tall grass. Almost as the wicked thought oc-I cured to us that we'd like to Intro- I duce these rodents to the hawk~i there was a nearby flash of broad wings as the birds swooped in front of the mower to capture the rats, eaing them on the spot. In the whole incidertt the hawks Friends i;llape By Joan Bostlan Mrs Jessie HamiRon and Mrs Kessie Jacobs visited Mr and Mrs Roy Freeman Sunday afternoon.

For his evil appetites many large friendly hawks are killed. His big bully cousin, the goshawk, is said to destroy all birds within his wide hunting range. Forttm- ately for us and for our birds, few if any, of these are found in this region, though ,they winter in Kansas.
