Happy Holidays

We interrupt this whole hawking season and training to bring you . . .


Oh, and Winter.  Ya, Winter!

Richard was able to get a "front row seat" to the Canadian Pacific Holiday Train as it came through Winona, right by Rich's workplace.

Rich took these pictures today of our neighborhood trees covered in hoar frost.

And one of my own.

A few days later, even more hoar frost.  Rich took a few more nice pictures.

Training Camp

Chimera is almost ready!  I am starting to take her to other locations and flying on the longer creance.  She also has very good response to the lure.

It is fascinating that you can go between just taking food on the glove and flying a distance to the glove in just a couple weeks.  What these birds are capable of is always amazing to me.

*Side Note*  Check out that cute hat I'm wearing above.  I knitted that!!  I'm proud of that too.
