I'd love too. See I'm an apprentice falconer. Which means for two years I have to learn under the guidance of a sponsor who is a more experienced falconer. My sponsor is the man in all the photos, he's been a falconer for over 30 years so he is now a master falconer which means he can basically own any bird he wants. See once I pass my two years studying as an apprentice I'll be a general falconer which means I can have most raptors, then if I keep up a few years of general falconry I can take another test to become a master falconer and work with any bird almost. But right now I'm just studying to past this up coming test so I can get my first bird, it'll be a female red tailed hawk. right now all I can do is help my sponsor on his hunts I can hold the bird he isn't using, feed them and the next thing I'm learning is how to gear the birds up for a hunt. But yeah thats some of the basic beginning information in falconry. If you have any more questions I don't mind answering them. In fact I love answering them, lol I can talk forever about these birds.
