Fraptorday: Weekly Raptor

Shelby, our male Harris’s hawk, perches on our van door before a hunt. We have him set up with some surveyor’s tape here to make him more plainly something that is not a prey bird, so hopefully if we do encounter a gun hunter they will get a clue that Shelby isn’t a pheasant, duck, or other game.
