New super scale hawk landed!

Well it's true. 1:1 scale and accurate down to the last detail. Free flight too! Little temperamental though!

This gorgeous guy is a ferruginous hawk. Can't wait until he is flying free!

One employee at our airport kept his next to our hangar. Beautiful birds.

I know they're free flight, but don't forget to charge them up beforehand.

Very impressive.
Took the kids to an all-inclusive resort in Mexico last spring break. They had a full time Falconer on staff, to keep the birds off the guests and the outdoor food. Had more fun watching him, than laying by the pool.

Because farmers cut down anything taller than they are, the natural nesting sites for these beautiful hawks were disappearing. We telephone people lobbied head office to leave a pole in the ground every mile or so when we took the pole lines down to bury the cable. We fenced off a 20 x 20 plot and planted trees around the pole and then made a nesting platform on the pole. By the time the pole rots off the solitary trees are big enough to nest in.
Ferruginous hawks really are magnificent creatures.

That is fantastic to read. Thank you for being part of that. All birds of prey are amazing and humans keep taking away their territory. My hope is one day people understand that the wild animals were here first and have every bit as much right to be here as we do. Conservation is going to be key as the human population grows. Most have no idea how important birds like this are to our environment.
