Wildlife Up Close: Harris’s Hawk

The second time that I have seen this bird of prey — but not as close as this. I don’t recall his name, but I do remember that he’s about 20 years old — which is about how long Harris’s Hawks can generally live to in captivity. This (relatively) well-trained male was performing during the last raptors show of the day. Photographed on September 14 at the Greater Vancouver Zoo.
