The rap­tors who make up the feathered team at Tac­ti­cal Avian Preda­tors Inc. put their pro­fes­sional ma­neu­vers on dis­play—and it’s all just part of a day’s work.

Sonja, a Harris’s hawk, stays ex­pertly fo­cused on her job.

Kath­leen Tigan’s Eurasian ea­gle-owl, Louise, strikes an im­pos­ing pres­ence—even when she’s tak­ing a break.

Louise shows off her im­pres­sive wing­span while fly­ing back to Kath­leen af­ter check­ing out the day’s work site.

The grow­ers at Hahn Fam­ily Wines in the Santa Lu­cia High­lands of Soledad, Cal­i­for­nia, reg­u­larly rely on Kath­leen’s com­pany for keep­ing their grapes on the vines—and safe from star­lings.
