We had a really long winter. I'm not a fond of the heat, or the cold, really. Seventy degrees is perfect.

My summer is going well and the birds like it as Im home more and they get to go outside in their small cage sometimes I am taking a summer course for school, biological anthropology, I dont mind though as Im loving the course. Then at the end of August I am doing an archeological dig at the site of a mid-19th century house down at the lake and I am so excited

Wow -too cool! I've thought about going back and taking a few archaeology classes to supplement my history degree, it fascinates me. Problem is, I don't know if I have the patience to sit in one spot and brush dirt off something for hours on end However, the excitement of discovery, of finding something new, must be so fun! I'm jealous! Keep us updated on how that goes

hey! you can pay for it :P haha. What kinda owl do you want? We have Eurasian eagle owls over here for 100, over there they're anywhere between 4000 - 6000 Ours was free but we gave the guy £30 just to say thanks Axel cost me £200 and the barn owl was also free. Not too sure about Todd, I haven't asked yet!

I think falconry would be so cool to get into, but I've already got this parrot hobby and I really want to start a saltwater fish hobby, which takes a ton of upkeep and time. If I ever were to get into falconry at all, I'd really just want an owl. I love owls.

I heard owls aren't technically "falconry" but people use that word with them anyway, is that true?

Owls can be falconry birds. Falconry is just the sport of using a bird of prey to hunt. I don't hunt that often but I use falconry techniques to train birds of prey and owls. So when I'm flying owls I would never call that falconry, I just say I'm using falconry techniques
