Blade (colour sketch).

Blade, Harris Hawk colour sketch.

Last weekend, I was fortunate enough to (along with my young lady) pay a visit to Exmoor Owls to assist in the training of their young Harris Hawk, Blade. We had an enjoyable morning assisting in his training as he flew to various perches, getting used to new people and we were lucky enough to feed him too as he flew from one of us to the other. A beautiful bird, full of character and intelligence. Such wonderful colours too, the reddish brown colours over his head and wings was really striking, and the way his feathers reflected the light of the sky was just magnificent: easy to see why I had to have a go at doing a colour sketch of him.
