Harrier Hawk for Bird Control Research Program

Maimai Creek developed a sustainable program that uses wild Harrier Hawks for bird control.

Using birds of prey to protect ripe grapes from aerial attack is favourable to the environment and reduces the impact on surrounding neighbours.

As with most vineyards we have an ongoing bird problem in the weeks leading up to harvest. We have a local population of Harrier Hawks that frequent our vineyard on a regular basis.

It’s these Harrier Hawks which we utilised as a biological tool for managing the effects of bird damage to our vineyard.
