Bird Perches on Top of Power Poles

Post by PhoenixBird » April 3rd, 2013, 11:32 am

In my area the local power company has installed many perches for the hawks on top of their more dangerous poles. I think this is a wonderful idea and I was wondering if other power companies are doing this. Several years ago I saw a dead Harris's Hawk at the bottom of a pole near my house. Within a week a perch had been placed on the pole where the hawk had most likely been electrocuted. Anyway, birds of all sizes seem to enjoy these things.
