Wolves of the Air

The Harris Hawk is just a sexy bird. They fly with amazing grace, speed and stealth. They also fly in groups, as many describe as a pack and they are referred to as wolves of the air because of their hunting tactics. Here you see the one on lookout, looking for prey which is often rabbits.

Once the prey has been caught, then they feed like you would think how a wolf pack feeds. They are very effective, very cool and the only place I know I can go out and say I’m going to photograph them and actually photography them is here on the border in TX.
