Silhouetted against darkening sky
Proud raptor perched on branch in tree nearby.
He is not alone on this quiet night,
Harris’ Hawks gather, preparing for flight.
Natural aggressions they put aside
To hunt, together, large prey they had spied.
Today’s poem was inspired by the Weekly Photo Challenge. I took this photo in January of this year at the Tucson Arizona Desert Museum. I wanted to display the photos I took there, but never made the time until I was challenged.
More photos of these magnificent birds are posted on my web page: http://www.squidoo.com/harris-hawks
