I guess it's a hawk but really not sure. Every night for the past couple weeks a bird starts screeching about every couple minutes and it goes on all night. We have seen a hawk in the yard during the day perched and flying here and there. In all our years here I can never remember a bird making so much noise at night. It makes our dog howl all night too. What's up with this hawk? Is there anything I can do to make it stop......other than shooting it, which I won't do but feel like it......it's dang loud and annoying.
