"Back to The Wild" animal shelter, near Castalia, Ohio.
This is captive bird, on permanent display. We had arranged a special photo shoot, the owners were kind enough to put some birds in natural settings and hiding their jesses.

Used: 300mm f/2.8 MF + 2x converter = 600mm f/5.6, Fujichrome Sensia 100F
I was at ground level shooting this magnificant bird.
