I thought I had a Buzzard flying low over my house today, which is quite unusual where I live. I've seen them soaring high on the thermals, but not low at speed. When I looked out of the window, sat on the rooftop opposite was a Harris Hawk. They are not wild here, but can be seen in many falconry centres up and down the country. It made my day, but I still had to let someone know that this bird was around. I have let the relevant people know and hopefully it will be back with it's owner soon.
What an awesome bird. You can see the ring on it's left leg.
I wouldn't get many birds on my feeders if these were around all the time.
Wow, great pictures. How big is it compared to a Buzzard? From FindlayReplyDelete
It looked the same size as a Buzzard to me.Delete
Beautiful captures, Adam! I love the one of him in flight!!ReplyDelete
he is gorgeous!ReplyDelete
Fun story. When I was looking for a spotting scope there was an escaped falconer's hawk sitting in a tree near the Cape May Bird Observatory. So in this great wild bird area we tested scopes on an escapee :)ReplyDelete
Mr.Harris is one handsome hawk. Great captures, Adam!ReplyDelete

Sorry I'm so late this week getting around to view your bird shares and checking out the Bird D'Pots linkies!!! The computer of mine is now running a lot smoother to where I can actually get out and browse photos!!!
Thanks for linking up at the Bird D'Pot this past weekend.
