Bird of Prey

By silverwolf
Anyone know what this is? It was in my neighbours garden. I only had a chance to grab my compact and not the DSLR. It's been cropped and lighting adjusted.

Looks very much like a Harris Hawk to me and a captive looking at the jessies on the legs, somebody has lost a lovely bird here. We have one missing in the Farnborough area.
Great capture

Thanks for the comments, I now know it's a Harris Hawk. I may tidy the image up a bit as I put this up very quickly.
