    That is terrific! Give him a high five for me! That takes a lot of work and more dedication than most kids that age have. Is that a Harris' hawk?

    Great going! I hope our next move will take us to an area where I can finally pursue that myself. The only birds I've had on the glove were aviary show hawks/owls. *Blush* I hope he enjoys the whole process!

    That's very cool! We had a falconer stop by our farm a couple days ago looking for one of his birds. Turns out he lives on the farm to the northwest of us! We plan on going over and asking him what he thinks about teaching our boys about falconry as my 11yo has been asking for months and months about keeping a falcon.

    I am so proud of this kid it's ridiculous! He has all the dedication and patience and discipline of a full grown adult. Pretty soon I'm gonna have to start beating girls off of him with sticks! [​IMG]
