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

Today, Wyvern "successfully" hunted . . . my glove. She followed, more or less, was not in position for the 4 or so bunnies we kicked out for her, and at the end of the hunt, when I dropped my right-hand glove, she flew in, grabbed it, and carried it off. She would then not come to the lure. It took awhile, but eventually I was able to convince her that what I had could actually be eaten.
I must let her and Sassy spend time together, so I can fly them together. She really needs an experienced hawk to teach her what we are doing.
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.
