My trip to the Delaware Raptor Center this day was to get some close ups of Benson. Benson is a resident bird and as you can see not quite to his adult plumage back than and still lacks a lot of white. But that does not make Benson very friendly to anyone but Jan his trainer and handler. Jan is going to bring Benson over to me so I can get a few nice close ups for prints for Foster Parents. I am hoping Benson will be in a good mode for his photo to be taken. #1 Her you can see Jan approaching Benson to pick him up on her forearm. The leather straps you see on his legs are called Jesses and are left on the bird at all times so it can be controlled while roosting on a forearm. #2 Jan is getting Benson to climb up on her gloved hand and forearm to bring over to me.
