A study was conducted on 1050 ha (2592 acres) of the Lower Piedmont Plateau of Alabama to determine if a correlation existed between the number of small mammals present in various habitats and the number of hawks. Although the number of small mammals did tend to vary in the different habitat types, no correlation was found to show that an increase in small mammal numbers resulted in an increase in hawks.
