A beautiful hawk is brought to Trafalgar Square to deter pigeons. There are different opinions on this practise. Web search shows some people witnessed bloody attacks but my experience was not gruesome. From observing and talking to the hawk handler, hawk's presence alone is enough to keep pigeons away. There weren't any pigeons anywhere! The hawk is also a cameraman. It can carry tiny camera around the neck and the footage has been used in films. This is one busy bird.
