Harris Hawk


Harris Hawk
Originally uploaded by stephenlamb

During the session that we had with the Harris Hawk, a deceased mallard was placed on a bale of hay and the Hawk allowed to land on it. It promptly began tearing away at the mallard's feathers until it got to some meat. The hawk is holding it's wings in such a way as to protect and cover it's prey.

I liked this side view of the hawk at it's meal.
