Seprona recover bird of prey

SEPRONA, the department of the Guardia Civil that handles wildlife, have recovered a Harris’s hawk.

A resident of El Ejido had spotted the female hawk and reported it to Seprona. According to the Guardia Civil the bird had seemed disoriented but once the officers were able to capture her, they checked her leg ring thereby identifying the owner and returned her home where the owner was able to confirm ownership.

The hawk had escaped from her owner while out training a few days previously.

Harris’s hawks are commonly used for falconry because of their ease of training.
