Starting to get my new bird accustomed to people. After catching the bird from the wild, it takes 4 - 6 weeks of training before the bird can be released and counted on to (usually) fly back to my fist.
This is Maxine (Max) she’s a 3lb Redtail Hawk and is a sweetheart despite her size, she literally dwarfs Lady and her claws are so frickin’ cool, I get all weird and Jurassic park brained when I see raptor claws and she’s no exception! You can see she’s sporting a nice little raptor Mohawk because she’s still got a little moulting to do.
