    This is a Harris Hawk named Hans! (They are not that creative with the name)

    About 30 minutes into his show the wrangler asked if anyone wanted to catch him! I was first up! No pic of me yet but I have included one of another club member in action.

    I have heard of the sport of Falconry but didnt see why it would be such a big deal. Believe me, as soon as the bird hits your wrist..... you get it! What an amazing feeling!!

    There is also a shot of Hans eating!

    New species in my area recently and I was finally able to shoot and identify them

    The Horned Grebe

    I suspect this is a male and female based on the size and other subtle differences
