Nice looking bird! What is her hunting weight? She looks like she is about ready for a little coping! Have fun with her, I wouldn't be without a red-tail.

Happy Hawking,
Fred

maybe she's hungry ;)

i would also stop putting my hand up, that way she will stop biting.

Just use a feather m8,1 it saves the pain and 2 it gets her used to being touch.
I generally start with a long feather then just shorten it down as she gets better
