Harris' Hawk, Owl Sanctuary, Festival Park, Ebbw Vale 19 June 2015
Harris' Hawk (Parabuteo unicinctus) is native to the south western states of the USA and as far south as Chile. Popular birds in falconry, escapees have been recorded in Britain.

The Owl Sanctuary, at Festival Park, has been operating for fourteen years, initially against council opposition. Their remit is to rescue injured/neglected owls and other raptors, rehabilitate them and release them into the wild. Where, for some reason, this is not possible, they are looked after for life at the centre which is run by donations.
