Bia

Harris Hawk (Parabuteo unicinctus)

 

Bia is a female Harris Hawk and is 15 years old. She is our second newest member of the team but you would think she has been with us for years! She is used for a wide variety of our activities including seagull clearance, but her favourite time is in the winter when we take her out hunting around the local farmland. Harris Hawks are native to America, mainly Arizona and Mexico. They spend a lot of time on the ground due to their long legs, where they hunt in packs using their feet to catch prey.
