I wish I were a tenth as majestic as this creature.
I don't think Harris Hawks are any better at multitasking than I am. Their thing is more flying short distances from tree to tree looking for food, apparently. I could probably do that (without the flying), actually it is one of my favourite ways to spend a day if for "food" we substitute "cake". We also held an African Wood Owl called Georgie, waited as a female Bateleur Eagle called Guy did nothing whatsoever and watched as a turkey vulture (whose name I have forgotten) flew away in the direction of Moreton-in-Marsh, presumably to terrify coach parties and possibly steal scones. Good rural fun.
The only other weekend revelation was the existence of the Giant Crumpet. Did you know about this? Why was I not informed?
(Ten cent coin for scale)
I approve of it.
I will return when I am not being a dick about my work. I need this guy to sit on my desk and wither me into submission with his stare.
