Harris Hawk
Photographer: Diane Higdem
Location: West Valley Outdoor Learning Center
This Harris Hawk is a permanent resident of the center. The hawks hunt in packs in the SW of the US, and this one had been trained to be a hunter, so was quite docile despite his fierce look. The ridge over his eye acts as a visor to protect his eyes in the sun.
