I have a 55ft tower in my backyard with a TH7DXX and an M2 40mt dipole. The 
birds, Redtails and Shrikes included,  only occasionally sit on the 
antennas looking for food. They tend to protect nests, so unless there is a 
nest in the tower, they should move away when you approach.  Other than 
that, the only hazard I've experienced is the liquid type.

Two hawks have taken up residence in the woods somewhere in the
neighborhood. These are serious birds - I think they are Red-tailed hawks,
because that seems to be the most common variety around here (NH). Wingspan
seems to be about 5-6 feet and they have big, sharp, nasty-looking hooked
beaks. They make a screeching sound whenever they are in the trees in our
yard and I am walking around outside; they are apparently protesting my
presence on "their" turf.
