[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Harris Hawks (or Bay Winged Hawks) are common in the southwestern states. They have been known to take down other birds in flight. Because of this, they are used in the ancient sport of falconry. If caught very young, Harris Hawks can become quite tame.

Taken in captivity.

Hi Chris.
What an unusual and impressive POV and framing. I think this is rather rare view and you are luck photographer because of you managed to tale such picture. Surprising colourstion of the eyes, excellent details and reproduction of the feathers and other attractive features of the bird. My compliments and TFS.

Hello Chris

Excellent portrait of the Harris Hawk with very
fine POV, the way its is framed on the image
and the tight framing, obtaining a expressive
glance and eye-contact from the bird of prey, TFS
