3 Different Raptors Living On Top of One Another

Recommended Posts

I have an observation and a question that some may find of interest?  On my property and the surrounding area where I live, we have a pair of Red-Shouldered Hawks, a pair of Broad-winged Hawks and a plethora of Barred Owls ( I know some don't consider owls to be a raptor).  I find it interesting on how there is enough food and good habitat to support all three of these living basically in the exact same domain.  I realize that the owl will hunt at night so that makes some sense but since all three eat basically the same diet, how do you suppose they avoid the interference?  The hawks are raising young.   Is this unusual or not?
