New bird for the season

Meet Starlord, my first year tiercel (male) Aplomado Falcon.  He is really small, flying at about 240 grams. 12–16 in (30–40 cm) long and with an average wingspan of about 36 in (90 cm), his species typically hunts small birds, lizards and small insects.

Website was down, but it’s all good now.

Well, I am sorry my sight was down for a bit but really looking forward to flying on jacks with my male harris hawk again and I am really excited to try quail and doves with my new aplomado falcon “Starlord”

Updates

I havent posted in a while so I’ll give everyone an update. I had a slow season do to low game numbers, pray for rain, and I had to have heart surgery in New Years Eve. I had 2 heart stents put in that saved my life but I am doing awesome now and I can’t wait to get out again next season in full force.

Hiccup, my peregrine/gyr hybrid flew off in February in Gardnerville and is still gone. My new harris hawk did ok, but not up to my standards, so next season we will get her straightened out.

I am hoping to get a new Aplomado Falcon this summer, but if not, I’m getting another coops most likely. If I can’t get a coops I will get a kestrel for fun.

Ill post pics of any fun stuff. But here is a small one.

Update

Well I wanted to let visitors know that my site is still active. I am currently training a new female harris hawk that I got last week. She is coming along ok and I think she will be fine with my male. Don’t be afraid to come on out and see falconry. Fill out the meet and greet for northern or southern Nevada.

RIP Kit

It is with great sadness that I said to goodbye to my 5 year hunting partner Kit. She passed away on 7/10/2014 from post surgery complications. I will miss her.

New Harris Hawk

Well, I have a great new little male harris to add to my cast.  His name is Zane.  He should fly about 600gr or so.  I finally got out into the field this weekend for about an hour.  My birds, Tanis and Kit, were finally ready to go hunt after a super late start on the molt.  Zane should mix in really well with my cast.  Here is a pic of him.  Please fill out the Meet and Greet if you have an interest in falconry and would like to come out and see what it’s all about.
