Hawk at the Territory Wildlife Park

On the last full day of my long weekend trip to Darwin, I rented a car and headed out to Berry Springs to visit the Territory Wildlife Park. It was only about a 45-minute drive from Darwin, but it felt like its own separate world.

I arrived just in time for the morning show at the “Flight Deck,” featuring a number of birds of prey. This beautiful bird is a hawk (at least, I think so—I didn’t write down the names of all the birds we saw), and you can see that he is just about to fly away.

I took this photo at the Territory Wildlife Park in Berry Springs, Northern Territory, Australia in May 2010.
