No problem! I don't know if they eat fish, but I do know they eat a variety of insects, amphibians, and reptiles. I know if they are nonreleasable they may be fed chicks, hamsters, and mice. Here is a website to learn more about them in your area! Oklahoma is a breeding ground for these lovely raptors. http://www.odwc.ok.gov/wildlifemgmt/spec...

Thanks, I have a pair that hang around my backyard. I live out in the country somewhat. I also have a koi pond, wondering if that's an attraction for them? We miss fish occasionally.
