Have you seen more hawks in your backyard than usual? Well, there is a reason behind that. The Michigan Department of Natural Resources says that young Cooper's hawk as well as red-tailed hawks, which are in urban as well as suburban areas, will be coming out more this month to become familiar with their surroundings.

Young hawks will land on places like deck rails and fences after some of their first flights, which makes them easier to spot. But you shouldn't be too concerned, they mean no harm to you or your pets.

“While it may be alarming to see these hawks in your yard, they mean you and your pets no harm,” public outreach and engagement manager in the DNR Wildlife Division Holly Vaughn, said in a release.

Hawks' diets don't consist of more than animals that are four pounds, which means you and your pets should be in the clear. Red-tailed hawks will eat things like rabbits, squirrels and other smaller mammals.

Hawks are protected under the federal Migratory Bird Treaty act, so you cannot harm or capture them. If you have chickens in your backyard, you will want to make sure that they are safely fenced in at all sides.

Younger hawks will leave their parents later on in the summer to find a new hunting area. So, if you are a bird watcher, this is one of the best times to observe these birds.
