This little gyr-saker falcon chick has an important future ahead of it.
It will be used as a working bird specially trained to scare off seagulls and pigeons from locations including football stadiums.
Currently, the two week old chick - which is three parts gyrfalcon and one part saker falcon - and its three siblings are being cared for by mum Mojo. When it is fully grown at nine weeks, its training begins.
And bird and pest control company NBC Environment, based at Snetterton Park, want your help to name their baby bird of prey.
It will not be known whether the bird is male or female for a few weeks so the name will need to be unisex.
To suggest a name visit NBC Environment on Facebook or Twitter and add a comment.
The winning name will be picked by the firm’s head of falconry, Andy Hulme.
