Got out of my car today at my mother's house in Richardson about 4:00 pm. As I stepped up on the curb a hawk came tumbling down and hit near my feet. DOA. What kind of hawk and what could have killed it? No power lines nearby. Just a big oak. Poisoned rat maybe?
Too bad. I like having them around. They keep the squirrels thinned out around my house.

Yep, very fun to watch those guys. Hate to see that.
We have a pair of Harris hawks that raise their young near our house....they hunt ring-neck dove and tree rats from our backyard feeders.....very kool to watch.....I love raptors second only to snakes.....
