Winged warrior

Hawk-eyed and ready...
Eagle-eyed sentry...
Often at resorts in tropical climates, the outdoor restaurants are magnets for local birds, usually crows or similar breeds. They are there to scavenge for free food. Often they are bold enough to land on tables and snatch any morsels they see.

This guy/gal at Dreams Resort in Huatulco was there to re-establish law and order in the avian world. Several times throughout the day, a handler would walk it around the grounds on his arm and unleash it to chase off unwanted winged beggars. Between shifts, s/he was content to sit on a corn cob perch stuck into the ground and pose for amused resort guests.
