While back from the trail walking at McGough Nature Park (The Narrows Park) in Largo, Florida we have to stop by the Nature Center building there.  They are exercising some of the Raptor birds there by taking them out and flying them and feeding them their natural food.  Most are being taken care of after being found injured and are being rehabilitated where possible.  Here is a Red Shouldered Hawk sitting on a person’s hand protected by a thick leather glove.

ISO 500, F/4.5. 1/180 sec, 105 mm Lens
