Leroy on Final Approach.  Leroy may believe that he’s a human (the result of early imprinting while being raised in captivity), but he still knows how to fly like a Harris’s Hawk.  He’s demonstrating how amazingly fast, agile, and graceful he can be while positioning himself to land in a juniper tree.  Leroy resides at the International Raptor & Falconry Center, a nonprofit wildlife shelter in Flagstaff, and he loves to show off.<br />
