Jefe, a 6-month-old Aplomado falcon, sits inside of a wooden holding box waiting for his owner and trainer, Justin Robertson, to take him out to fly on Wednesday in an open field near Cooper's Landing. The hood Jefe wears is made of kangaroo leather and helps to keep him calm during transport to and from flying sites.
