Diesel* (Red-shouldered hawk) was retired from the sport of falconry when her handler realized she only wanted to hunt earthworms and grasshoppers instead of a hawks usual prey. Diesel is a human imprint, which means she does not recognize her own species.  Can you imagine what it would be like if you didn’t recognize yourself as being a human around other humans?

  1. There are one or two people I can think of who are sub-human!

    Snorts with piggy laughter. I don’t recognize my own kind. I’m human. A hog with a blog if you will. HA! Love Diesel. I think we could be great friends. XOXO – Bacon

    It would be nice if more hawks would go for grasshoppers around here. She’s a beautiful bird even if she thinks she human.
