Personalidad de los accipíteres

“Los accipíteres son un grupo adaptable de aves cetreras que pueden cazar exitosamente en cualquier lugar. El único inconveniente es que poseen una personalidad que hace muy difícil que esto pueda llevarse a cabo.” Michael Mcdermott 

Os accipiters são um grupo adaptável de aves de falcoaria que podem caçar com sucesso em qualquer lugar. A única desvantagem é que eles têm uma personalidade que dificulta muito isso.

Harris´s Hawk intelligence

“The better Harris´s Hawks “rebound” or resume the chase after missing. Harris´s Hawks rebound more than other species, probably because of their cooperative hunting tactics.“ 🦅

Falcoaria e mundo moderno

É por isso que a falcoaria é tão importante no mundo moderno.

The dangers of hunting squirrels with a Harris Hawk

Jennifer and Tom Coulson in the book “The Harris´s Hawk revolution” say:

“Catching many hundreds of gray squirrels with Harris´s Hawks has forced us to conclude that squirrels are too dangerous a quarry and not worth the risk. We now avoid squirrels with the same seriousness and determination that we would avoid a raccoon because the danger is comparable. We concede that gray squirrel hawking is sporty, and the excitement level of hunting them with a group of Harris’s hawk in deep woods is unbeatable, were not for the injures. (…) Even the most experienced squirrel hawks are almost never careful. (…) While it´s unlikely that the squirrel will kill the hawk, it is possible that a simple bite will put the hawk out of commission for a season or for life. (…) If you hunt squirrels with a Harris’s hawk, you do so without our blessing.” The Harris´s Hawk revolution, pages 308-311.
