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

Getting to Know You
Rich made for me a "Getting to Know You" perch, so my two Harris Hawks can get acquainted. So far, Wasp had an opportunity yesterday while I was letting them see each other, holding Sassy, to reach out and "sting" Sassy with a bit of a crab. He has an attitude and certainly isn't impressed with this large female.
By way of caution, this perch is only used under supervision. It is not safe to leave them tethered this way without my being nearby.
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.
