Harris hawk 

Well this unpredictable bird certainly gave us a run for our money whilst on our hawk walk she flew off and nearly got a pheasant right in front of us . Fortunately for the pheasant , Harris hawks aren’t solitary hunters and usually there are several of them that work to hunt their prey .

However we were told that only yesterday he’d managed to get a duck from one of the surrounding gardens …. a sitting duck literally !!

They hunt with there eyes and can see upto a mile away . those talons are lethal aren’t they ? That wing span !!!
