I remember coming across that story not long ago, Jim. What a fantastic profile, and great pics as well. And the joy in her face is impossible to hide.
I’ve always been fascinated by falconry, and I could see myself getting really into it, if I ever made the leap. However, I have met enough falconers to know that it is a serious and time-consuming commitment, and I’m afraid a number of other hobbies (like trad archery!) would fall by the wayside. I have infinite respect for those that dedicate themselves to it.
