    Not to shabby, although at first I did wonder why an Animal Control
    Officer should need be concerned with what appeared to be a healthy raptor.

    Does he do raptor rescue and rehab?

    This bird showed up about 5 miles down the road from where I live. He
    was sitting on their back deck and didn't seem to want to leave. The
    Harris' Hawk is not native to North Carolina, by about 2,000 miles, so
    the local wildlife rehab places don't want to or simply will not mess
    with them. He was banded and very tame so he was probably lost by a
    falconer, we're trying to locate the owner by the band number, but
    there isn't a national band number registry; so it is turning out to
    be a bit of an ordeal.

    Yeah, that's a cool pic. I don't think I'd have mentioned the Animal
    Resource Officer, however. You lose points for shooting a tamed hawk.
    Fish in a barrel and all that ....

    Your hawk series proves what I figured out a few years ago with Harry
    the Hawk. Hawks love Hamburger!

    It's only humour if it's funny. You'll have to explain this one to me, 'cos
    I don't get it.

    Birds, some what out of date slang for women, popular in the 70's.

    I still like to refer to our lady singer in our little jazz band as, "The
    canary"...

    I looked but Google doesn't carry that group, and I'm cheap, but you
    are welcome to cross-post the link.

    I know, but it was a lot cheaper then a trip to the Texas-Arizona
    area.
    Hamburger, Pffft!, Beef strips. Though driving down I was looking for
    a tasty HBC morsel, no luck.

    Uninjured, obviously tame and trained, well outside out its native
    area, captured and handed over to the NC Falconers Guild, hopefully to
    find its owner, but at least he has someone to cared for him.

    I had thought about going to a falconry competition before to watch
    and photograph this may be another good reason to go.

    You could do a photo-j essay and post it ... might help find the owner.

    Owner might have abandoned the bird as well.

    Considering the price of the bird I rather doubt it was abandoned,
    Even if the owner did want to get rid of it He could sell it as it is
    atleast partly trained.

    I'm contemplating writing up something for the local rag...
