Rico is Poppy’s little brother in age and size! He was hatched in 2016 and has been hand reared by the Coda team from a young age. Rico is definitely the clown of the group and has to be kept entertained between flying otherwise he will get up to all sorts of mischief. He is a very intelligent and fast learning hawk who is a familiar part of our experience days and demonstrations and it looks like he has inherited his sister’s love for chasing things out in the field.
