Re: What ring is this please
Only owned the bird a few days but shes on a perch now in a shed. Could i ask why? Also her foot seems to be a bit to the side?

Re: What ring is this please
its talon is blunted ,unusual for a hh even as an eyass ,its obviously been jumping about a lot, theyre not stressy birds unless mishandled
the jess is in from the wrong side by the way

Re: What ring is this please
The ring you are asking about is a breeders ring, in your case "W" denotes the size, usually fitted to females, goshawks harris hawks and peregrines and other birds of this size, but sometimes they are fitted to males incorrectly, incorrect size could result in accidental hook ups when out hunting, there looks a lot of room around your one is it a male or a female?
I would guess that the 16 could mean it is a 2016 bird, hatched in that year, and the three digits behind this could be the breeders innitials.
Get yourself a mentor not a book.

Hi Steven

I appreciate you have joined the forum to gain some knowledge but unfortunately you need that information prior to buying your Harris hawk.

It is difficult to tell but looking at the picture and the way the Harris is standing your Harris has a problem with either rickets through a poor diet as a youngster or it has had a broken leg that has not been set correctly.

I am not one for newbie bashing but the way you hawk is tethered is not appropriate and it will be heading for another broken legs soon.

Please find a local falconer to help you.

Thanks for reply i will get someone elsel to look at leg as i thought the same as you.

Re: What ring is this please
Hi its right leg is not right, that dog clip is a death sentence if the leash doesn't kill it first, you need help and quickly,please sort the equipment out tomorrow before you put the bird out in the open then search here for someone to help you asap
