Harry the Hawk grew up on my deck … we’ve captured numerous photos and videos of him flying through the Japanese garden. Harry often moves too fast to be photographed clearly. (See gallery of photos and videos below.)
One month ago, early in the morning of November 20th, one of Harry’s children, a beautiful juvenile hawk, smashed into a high window and tragically died: his parents are in mourning, but I was able to capture some beautiful photos of him. We are calling him Horus, due to the position in which he landed.
Young Horus, at less than one year old, already has a wing span of two feet. If anyone can identify what kind of hawk he is, please let me know in the comments below!
