This is Frodo, he's a young hawk rehabilitating at Sathaven - a volunteer wildlife rehabilitation facility in Mt Brydges Ontario Canada.
He was stolen from his nest when he was just a baby (you can tell by the stress fractures in his feathers), presumably by a falconer (someone who hunts with birds). If you can believe it, he was hit by a car! He's partially blind and still suffers from exhaustion when he's out flying for too long.
This is a shot of him dropping straight down to his trainers 'perch' for a snack.
