Yesterday afternoon Marilyn and I were again at the Arizona Sonora Desert Museum. We had the pleasure along with a couple hundred other people attending the free flight bird exhibition. It featured a Gray Hawk and a family of Harris Hawk’s. The birds put on a terrific performance and it was amazing to see how unafraid of people they were. The docent had warned people to not raise anything above eye level and the warning was well heeded by everyone. This warning proved to be very factual as there were times when birds would skim by barely over the attendees heads.
Below are four images of a gray Hawk.
Below are several images of Harris Hawk’s. The docents explained that Harris hawks live in a group or family. By doing this it increases their efficiency at hunting.
These hawks were beautiful and it was very interesting and exciting to view them in flight and taking perches.
The Arizona Sonora Desert Museum has many interesting exhibits it is well worth a visit. Put it on your bucket list!
