Lori took the full time homelearners to meet this lovely peregrine falcon near the Cowan house, today. We heard about falconry duck-hunting methods, all the little baubles, rings, and leash, etc. that she wears, and how to hold her. I believe she weighed about 3lbs.
She has to wear a little hood too keep her calm while being handled.
She's interesting, definitely, but not affectionate.
