I am a woman falconer, enjoying the Great Outdoors with a hawk on my fist.

For Hit Girl, the moult is almost over. She's put in a very nice set of new feathers, to include the signature Red Tail. Small Game season opens in one month . . . soon it will be time to pick her back up, reinforce her training, and get back out there for the new season.
She was out for a quick summer shower . . . now she is drying off her wings.
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.
