Great landing pose. One of my favorite Hawks.
Unfortunately I only see them when I go to a place where they have them captive.

Karl, I understand.  For me what probably cannot be demonstrated in captivity is that Harris's Hawks stay as a family unit.  The adults do not run off the young when they become a certain age.  Because of that, there is a distinct hierarchy within the Harris's Hawks family dynamics.  As far back as I can remember, a female has always been in charge.

A beautiful image and great information on the species, Gene.
