An embarrassment of riches, old idiom, but so true here. When we processed our photographs of raptors taken at the Avian Conservation Center the idea was to publish a second series. The first was completed March 2016. Instead it has been piece meal publishing.
One of my favorite for in flight photographs is the Harris Hawk. Which appears to have promptly gone down a black hole.
The shot above is a Harris Hawk setting up to land on a stump.
Here is the perfect landing.
What is not visible in these photos is a transmitter he wore. This hawk is flying loose, lands in trees, and glides low over the field before coming back for food. They have been known to fight with local hawks flying by, and once in a while take a small field trip.
