Pictures from the falconry centre

Being as you guys haven't seen the birds I thought I'd share a few pictures. I don't have that many, but I can share a few There are too many birds there for me to get individual shots of, but next time I go up I'll take some individually

First three pictures: Bruno - Little owl
4th: Ellie - Bald eagle
5th: Cash - Turkmenian eagle owl
6th: Three snowy owl chicks
7th: Pickles (bateleur) and George (African white-backed vulture)
8th: Dave - bateleur
9th: Pickles - bateleur

Me too! Most people would be shocked to find that they are so loving and wonderful to be around. Just cause they eat carrion doesn't make them bad birds. They're so sweet! They just wanna be with their trainers hehe

i think theyre just gorgeous birds and if you really sit and watch a turkey vulture fly.... you can truly see the grace and beauty in the way they fly and the way the silver feathers underneith their wings shimmer. and i personally like the red bald head because its cute so wrinkly lol if id gotten into falconry, a turkey vulture would be my dream bird, but logically a kestrel would likely suit me better. small and cute and a tad less expensive to feed lol falconry is expensive..... but i can dream lol
i have assisted in banding wild hawks here. ive adopted a few out of a program. ive adopted a female sharp shinned hawk, a female merlin, and a male sharp shinned hawk as well as numerous songbirds (ruby throated hummingbird, rose breasted grosbeak, blackpoll warbler) ive also banded songbirds as well. but id still love to do falconry. maybe one day lol

I highly recommend if you do start to go for a bird such as a red-tailed hawk, 'cause birds like American kestrels are puny and if you drop the weight too low in training you can and will kill them! I would rather work with the biggest of birds of prey than the smallest. On windy days we often have to keep the little owls and American kestrels on the creance cause they can get blown away

Turkey Vultures in my opinion are very beautiful. I could buy one for 800 if I wanted to as I know a man willing to sell me his XD

It depends really. Cause vultures don't hunt. And if you live in the US there are tons of falconry rules. Like I guess I don't 'do' falconry cause I don't really bother hunting at all. But I use falconry techniques to train birds of prey. So I go out and fly them to me and stuff and have them soar but never actually catch anything but the food rewards I give xD you would have to look into the rules a lot more, cause over here it's pretty much free. Except if you harm a bird or do not treat it right you get prison I think xD but yeah, it seems a lot more difficult to take up in the US. You'd also have to ask somebody to be your trainer sort of thing. I really don't know how it works. I'll have a good look for you xD
