Falconry is my passion! That is . . . Hawking is my passion!
I have pursued other hobbies in my life, but nothing has so captured my imagination, or motivated me to make the effort to continue in this activity like hawking has. I have no illusions of my abilities. I am just an average falconer. There are others I have had the pleasure to meet who pursue it with far more expertise and skill. I do not anticipate ever "moving on" to take up a falcon or an accipiter, with the only possible exception being either another kestrel, or maybe some day a merlin. Where I live is perfectly suited for "dirt hawking", and that gives me plenty of pleasure!
However, I do openly enjoy sharing my enthusiasm for this sport . . . and for that reason I created this blog and maintain it as an open forum. I also seldom pass up any opportunity to share my love of my birds with others, to tell them about the sport, and to show off my birds. I enjoy proselytizing for the sport . . . the appreciation for those who have no interest to pursue it, and the infecting of those who might. Increasingly my blog is being noticed, and I frequently get contacted from people in the public. As much as I am able I try to meet these inquiries with enthusiastic replies.
So Brandon . . . interested????
