_MG_0044 Directed Launch

The hawk on the command and control platform initiates the launch of the prey retreival system.

The Red Shouldered hawks are usually on the platform in the morning. Sometimes - you can walk up vey close to them.

The same advanteage of height, above the tall stuff, gives them a place to hunt from and to dine on the outcome.
