Getting to Know You
On a day when I can't fly my birds (working tonight, gotta sleep), they can spend some time tied out under the weak Minnesota sun and get acquainted. Wyvern in the front, Sassy in the back. Sassy is actually much bigger, flying at around 1010 grams. Wyvern is flying at about 760. Today they are both fatties, as I fed them good yesterday knowing I could not go hunting today. No one is too worried about food right now. A good way to get to know each other.
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.
