Me and Chalkie

I cannot for the life of my figure out whether or not I actually like this, but I don't really have many pictures of me with my animals. So I just thought I'd share

I did comment on this before but hey. It's not there! Perhaps it didn't send. He is gorgeous. Is he a red tail?

Yes she is, about 15-18 years old they think, Poor Horus was found emaciated and bald on her belly. What we think happened is she came from a sort of "falconry puppy mill" Horus has a permanent brood patch on her belly, and she had bumblefoot BADLY when we first found her. We got another bird like her, but sadly poor Jester needed to be euthanized, he was only a year old, and the bumblefoot on his right foot was so bad he couldnt uncurl his talons.

This is Jester, seen with the wrap on his foot:



I wish I could have used him for falconry, very even tempered bird for an imprint,
let you handle the perch and his feet while sitting here like this. I miss him!

Well mostly its the stupid people within the US falconry system. To pass the test to be a licensed falconer, you have to get a baby hawk, and raise it til its flying and then set it free. We have had Horus, Jester, and Scarlet all from we believe the US, as they are all imprints, that were found starving to death. Myself and Reg, the other bird handler at the wildlife centre believe thats something only a master should do, not a person without experience. Just because of the risk of imprinting.

Imprinting raptors IMO can be dangerous. The eagles are the worse but they all seem to scream and they sure are nasty with you. Nothing worse than an imprinted golden eagle!

I don't understand how falconry works in the US. Any chance you could explain it to me? I've tried looking everywhere! I just wanted to know if you could keep that bird that you caught? And what happens when you stop being an apprentice? Can you have ANY raptor after that?

It's such a shame he had to be put down. I've never seen such dark red tails. Those poor things

Well yes, there is different colour morphs by area of Red Tails. BC coast has very dark brown ones, and Scarlet, who was found in Victoria BC is from the great plains, shes a Krider's Red Tail.

I think that yes, after you have successfully "released" the bird, you can have any bird. Here in Canada, you have to wait certain years to get different birds, like for instance, you have to at least be a fully licensed falconer for at least 5 years before you can get a Peregrine from the wild. I'm not really that sure about US laws though.

Hmmm okay thanks!

I knew they had different morphs but honestly I've never seen them that dark the ones I've worked with are very light
