You have it scheduled in the middle of the heaviest BOP migration period for us up here. Not sure you will get a lot of participation from Kansas this year.

Kansas must have a migration of BOP from September thru November, but it is rare that I ever see a hawk in Kansas during a fly. Where I see the hawks is in Oklahoma and Arkansas during flies.

Nick,
They are here now, had one hit my YB kit this morning. They will be here en masse until mid to late Dec. Gets worse every year. Makes it impossible to prep a kit for the Fall Fly, that is why I have given up on the Fall Fly. Not sure what Jim and Norm are going to do because Jim has it worse than me. Good luck.

Joe, I think Jim and Norm will fly. They are strong when it comes to competing. Talked to Jim just a few days ago and he and Dixie are leaning towards flying. I have them too Joe. It is nothing new on this side. Good luck with your birds!

Sal,
Have you ever witnessed 6 or 7 BOP attacking your kit at the same time. That is what happened to me today. Flew my main kit of 22 old birds, got 14 back. I don't have anything left to fly if I wanted to fly. This may be it for me, thinking about getting out of pigeons all together with all these BOP problems. Ron Harrison is having the same problem so he told me today he is going to drop out of the Fall Fly. Good luck boys, I wish you all well.

Wow, 6-7 BOP at once, that would be a sight to record. I get frustrated by two Peregrines sometimes hitting my birds twice a week. Luckily I havent seen one for a few weeks as Im starting to fly new squeakers and they are doing great. I'M EXCITED!

Joe, I have, I am from Southern California...LOL.. I used to loose about 100+ birds a year to the BOP.. I think anything with wings took one out there. All kidding aside, I understand. I have had my share of losses this year already and I know I will have more. I just try and slow it down by shutting down for weeks at a time. My wife actually loves it as that is when I catch up on my honey dues...lol....I wish you luck with your final decision on the matter, you will be missed.

Joe, Probably what you got is a pair of adults and 4 or 5 of their youngsters. They will hunt as a group until the youngsters mature and then the parents will run them off.

Nick,
You may well be right, I had never seen that kind of mass attack before . The rest of kit is so spooked that they will be ruined for some time. Last night a sparrow flew into their kitbox and the whole kit went nuts. I hope some of the MIA may show up in the next day or so. Maybe I will have something to fly next spring. Good luck to all of Region 5.

Mark, shut your birds down for a couple of weeks, it might help to keep the BOP away. Good luck!
