Isham, Red-tailed Hawk

Meet Isham, a rescued red-tailed hawk whom I had a recent opportunity to photograph at the popular Raptor Experience presentation at the Buffalo Bill Center of the West museum in Cody, Wyoming.

Isham, named after one of Buffalo Bill’s favorite horses, was struck by a car and suffered an injury that resulted in the loss of his right eye.  Since he is not able to survive in the wild, he was trained as an educational bird and has been teaching the public about birds of prey for about five years.

Red-tailed hawks are the most common hawk species in North America, and they can often be spotted roosting on bare branches or telephone poles along country roads.
