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

Rich and I use a GoPro with our hawking, although this last season I didn't have a whole lot of days out in the field with Rich along to record much. However, this mini documentary about eagle falconry is a very good demonstration of the technology.
A lot of this appears familiar, as last month I went to go see The Eagle Huntress. It may have been staged, but was still a very picturesque window into a unique form of falconry practiced by the nomadic Kazakh people.
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.
