Harris' Hawk Profile by KeldBach Harris' Hawk Profile by KeldBach
Went to the Copenhagen Zoo to watch the daily training of the birds of prey. The Falconer was kind enough to let her Harris’ Hawk (Parabuteo unicinctus) pose for me after the session. Notice the membrane covering half of its eye. Some more shots of this magnificent bird. The colours seem to change quite a bit during the seasons:
