Harris’s Hawk -escaped?
I forgot to mention in my previous post that Steve Sosensky found a Harris’s Hawk this morning on the roof of the Hotel Del Coronado with bands on both legs. While the bird lacked jesses, the bands were not consistent with USGS-looking bands. Presumably this is an escaped falconry bird. Something to be mindful of if you see a Harris’s Hawk in the area or happen to have lost one recently.
