Some birds work for a living just like we do. This Harris hawk hunts for a falconer in Spain.
This year’s most famous working bird is Rufus the Hawk who patrols Wimbledon to scare away pigeons. Click here for the beautiful Stella Artois commercial in which he stars.
Today humans get a day off in the U.S.
Happy Labor Day.
