This bird is captive. It was part of a falconry display, but looking very forlorn in a large wicker basket a short distance from the watching crowd and the action with the other birds. Suddenly he(?) opened his eyes and stared straight through me. Displaying the hunter within, I think I know what a field mouse must feel like now.
