Falconry | Hawking with Belle the Harris Hawk

Belle’s First Hunt!

In this video, Martin and Belle head out into the desert to look for jackrabbits. Belle stays mostly perched on Martin’s arm as he walks quickly and sways his walking stick in search of jackrabbits.

Belle is still very young and not yet in top physical shape. She will need lots of practice yet.

Belle the Harris Hawk is one of our Wildlife Ambassadors. In addition to attending educational presentations with Martin, she is a falconry bird. Her full story can be viewed in this YouTube Playlist.
