Mick - bursitis and muscle trauma

A harris hawk from Rotterdam Airport works together with his falconers to keep passengers inside aircraft safe. They do this by keeping the airspace bird free. Mick (This is the name of the bird) along with other birds are dotting the area around the airport. This way other birds stay at bay.

Because Mick always works hard and uses his claws a lot he got a painful bulge. After examination by Dr O. Marvan they discovered Mick had Bursitis.

After an injection and medication Mick's health got better very rapidly. After some rest Mick is now working again at the airport. Here he performs his job as if he never quit.
