'Murphy' is the name of the Bald Eagle who lives at The Falconry Centre in the west Midlands visited in late 2012. Murphy stood out amongst the other raptors at the centre - he was definitely the most vocal and seemed to have a real personality. Bald Eagles are beautiful birds with huge, almost griffin like proportions, the ultimate bird of prey. Hopefully Murphy's personality and stature has been captured in this portrait.
