Very nice bird. I had a lovely experiance with one I used to help care for at collage while doing my ND in animal care. Some how the hawk managed to climb onto my head and get a good grip of my scalp in the process, it BOODY hurt in both sences of the word. All my fault of course but still it was lovely.

when we first got her she footed me a few time the worse time was when she grabbed me right around my thum and her claws went round my bone and had to get my old man to pull the talans out and boy that hurt !! stud there for 5 min thinking she will let go in a min !!she didnt :lol2:

well we watched a few dvds on them and thought that looks easy enough !:lol2: but theres a lot more to them than you think ! you have to weight the bird then work out how much fresh meat thay need ! its mainly to do with weight because if there not hungry they wont come back to you ! and thats just feeding then theres flighting them every day ! but there worth it !

She's gorgeous! Do you intend to hunt with her when you get her down to her flying weight?
