There is aerial protection flying over the tennis courts at Wimbledon.  Not drones, not military choppers, just Rufus the Hawk.
Here is story about Rufus who keeps pigeons away from courts and players. Rufus is a buteo, species: Harris’s Hawk, favored by falconers for their smarts, loyalty, strength.  Ironically, Harris’s Hawks are found only in the New World.  It is found in the arid southwestern U.S., much of Mexico and southward along the dry, Pacific Coast of Central America.
