Photograph was taken at the Desert Museum in Tucson, Arizona during the Raptor Free Flight exhibit. Raptor Free Flight is a dynamic bird of prey flight demonstration that occurs in the open desert showcasing natural behaviors of native birds. Unlike other bird flight shows, the Raptor Free Flight focuses the attention on the birds and their behavior in nature.
