Red Tailed Hawk, In Flight, A Series

This bird is blind in one eye. He has learned to compensate for it but cannot catch wild prey. They are too quick and in tests they always got away. I have photographed this bird before (and published numerous photographs).

This hawk is more than happy to fly, and is fitted with a small transmitter should he go on an adventure.
