Commanche is a female Harris’ Hawk that is an incredible example of how much larger and more powerful female hawks are than their male counterparts! She is a retired falconry bird that sustained an injury while hunting. She had grasped a squirrel in her talons but didn’t grab it quite right, the squirrel bit her toes causing her to lose a talon and damaged a tendon. Since she can no longer hunt successfully she was sent to the Center to join our flying team.
