The gorgeous Harris Hawk Chick is 10 days old here

Harris Hawk Chick

This handsome little fellow is, so I was told, a Harris Hawk. He is only ten days old in the picture. The lady holding him is responsible for his welfare and currently feeding him on minced beef.

When fully grown he will be a magnificent looking bird of prey thanks to the dedication of people like this who hand rear chicks. It must take great patience.

The picture was taken at Ashbourne on Sunday 30th July 2006. The event was a fund raiser for animal welfare.

It’s good that we have people like this around or many animals would be a lot worse off. It makes you feel all warm inside…….
