At 2 o’clock I went out to the loft and set the pigeons free for the daily dose of adrenaline (winter by the mountains, you can imagine). The pigeons already had a lot of hawk attacks experience and they were very fit. Seeing the raptor, they make a very tight flock and fly straight to the horizon extremely fast, leaving the hawk behind. This time, they already did the ranging 2 times and were getting back to the home area like little dots on the sky.
