“Cochise” is an 8 x 10 inch giclée archival print of the Mixed Media portrait of an Educational Ambassador male Harris’s Hawk from Fontenelle Forest Raptor Recovery. The original was done in Colored Pencil (Cochise) and Inktense (background). The tree he is standing on is the top of a large tree in the Wetlands area of Fontenelle Forest.
Cochise was found walking in a Hastings Nebraska neighborhood wearing jesses (falconry straps on the legs). It is believed he was separated from his falconer who quite possibly was illegally practicing falconry. Due to his imprinting on humans, he is a non-releasable raptor.
Did you know: Female Harris’s Hawks can be up to 40% larger than the males. They also tend to hunt in groups rather than alone. Young and sub adults have been known to jump on bugs or sticks as a form of practice for hunting.
