american harris hawk

Harry is six years old and arrived at the farm from his previous owner in Southampton in September 2018.  He is currently trained by Roundoak's Farm Manager - Paul Hutton.

Harris Hawks feed mostly on medium-sized mammals such as hares, rabbits, ground squirrels, and other rodents.  They are highly social, and often found in groups with complex social hierarchies and engage in cooperative hunting and breeding. 

They are extremely agile flyers, but may also run and hop on the ground in order to catch their prey.  They soar at high altitudes, sometimes plunging into dramatic dives, or even hovering backwards.

Harry attracts a lot of attention from visitors to the Farm!
