Unhappy Can I do anything about a hawk killing our wild birds?

Hi everyone!

I've been spending hours every day feeding and watching wild birds but, I'm thinking I may have created a problem . We have either a hawk or falcon (can't really tell the difference between the two) that I see every other day or so. When all the birds disappear from the feeding area, all I have to do is search the tree tops and, almost certainly I'll see it nearby. This morning I found some remains of a dead bird . No other animal prints nearby other than a rabbit's and a mouse/mice. There is, however, large bird prints, almost 3 times the size of regular birds' prints so I'm concluding it was the hawk/falcon. Is there anything I can do to protect the little birds from it? Or will I just have to stop feeding them altogether ?
