Flying for Tali
On Thursday Rich and I and the Girls met up with a young lady from Madison and her husband. The Girls flew nicely for their own paparazzi, as Tali and Colin have several very nice cameras, but unfortunately all they got to see was a lot of flying. Sassy got a quick flight on a single rabbit, a single squirrel (which quickly ducked into a hole), and gave the most excitement on a mouse chase, which she still didn't catch. Hit Girl just went out for a nice flight, as we found NOTHING while she was out. But each girl got good exercise, and Tali and Colin were delighted in the experience. I must say, I'm delighted in the video they made!

Thanks for contacting me and coming out with the Girls!
Falconry! Or more appropriately for me, Hawking! It is a passion, and a way of life. I happily pursue this sport, with the loving assistance of my husband. Come along with me for our adventures with the birds. Primarily we actively pursue it in the colder months . . . the rest of the time I try to make this blog as interesting as possible. Come let me share my stories, and feel free to contact me. I always enjoy talking about my obsession with this sport.
