A pretty old picture that resurfaced when I was organizing my folders on my computer
This was from the field trip with my Wildlife Rehabilitation program
This is Rusty, a red tailed hawk under the care of the falconers at Wye Marsh in Midland. You can see from this picture that his beak is very short and blunt, he had just gotten it filed by his handlers because he is unable to cope it properly on his own. While he was out to get his beak done, his handler who is a master falconer showed us how to properly restrain a bird of prey for a physical exam.
