Why my hawk is so cute

Oh my gosh, Chalkie is SO cute!!! Now we've got him tethered again and stuff he's become even more friendly than he was before hand. He's so goofy.

Here's one cute thing
Chalkie attacking the bottle - YouTube
And here's another cute thing
Chalkie has a hat - YouTube
The second one you can probably hear me holding in a laugh. I was almost crying

Hes so cute, Harris' really are such patient birds, so good for people starting out. Shake would have torn my hand off..

Was he/she a Harris? I do agree they're the best for starters in falconry for hunting that is. As for flying for fun I think the Eurasian buzzard is awesome!

No Shakespeare was a female Barred Owl. She really only tolerated me, and LOVED this one man working at our rescue. She is an ambassador bird there.

Oh haha! Owls in my opinion are quite nasty animals really. I've never not been bitten

When Shake and I started doing falconry together, she would stare at me, clack her beak, and clench my arm as hard as she could whenever I moved an inch, now shes more used to me lol

Oh even my lovely hand raised owl Axel would click her beak at me from time to time. I would just glare back at her

Owls aren't too bad at all for gripping IMO. Our Eurasian eagle owl didn't hurt often if she grabbed me but if my Harris' hawk grabs me when he's hooded or something that's a whole different story. I have a lovely cut on my arm the other day from when we fitted the new anklets and stuff!

No it wasnt too bad for pain or strength, but its almost like you could feel her disgust with you lol The one that got me good was a Northern Goshawk female. Changing her bedding with light gloves (injured bird in a kennel) and in one instant she plunged her talon through the cage, grabbed my gloved hand, and got the seam. She pinced as hard as she could, and my thumb lost all feeling.
Man she was powerful for how small she was.

SMALL! I think Goshawks are pretty large for hawks haha! Hawks and buzzards have a lot more power in their feet that's for sure
