Falconry Friday! Throwback edition

February 03, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

Morning peeps!  The weather is still not cooperating in terms of hunting opportunity and we're still playing catch-up after unexpected travel. I finally started reading Helen MacDonald's book "H is for Hawk" on the trip and it got me to thinking about when our own birds were youngsters.

In the coming weeks I intend to circle back around to a couple of equipment posts as well as continuing with the Owl's training but for today I'm looking back a few years to when all our hawks were babies.

And since I mentioned Helen MacDonald and her Goshawk, here are a couple photos of a friend's Goshawk, first in her juvenile year, then in her second year:
