Abstract:The purpose of this project was to document the metabolic efficiency of Parabuteo unicinctus (Harris hawk). The researcher found that on average, the test subject required 13% of its body in wet food intake daily, to maintain falconry conditioning. No direct linear relationship was found between the weight change and the humidity, temperature and activity level.
