WOW, those are stunning birds. I've been interested in falconry for a while, reading about it a bit, and hope some day I can spend a day with someone who has a falcon, to see what it's like -- it's doubtful I will ever be able to do more than that, but I can dream.

You mentioned that he breeds them, have you got any pictures of the babies, parents caring for them, etc? Not sure about anyone else, but I'd find that fascinating -- I can understand if the breeding area is off-limits though, I know that you have to be really careful about exposing them to germs and things (I worked in a pet store at one time and had to go through a whole routine of sterilizing my hands, changing clothes etc. before I could go see the baby parrots; I assume all birds are similarly delicate).
Check your state's Falconry a google search for Falconry groups or clubs or go to and you might find it listed there !

As for pics of babies...yes I can get some but I must warn you, and Reefcherie can back me on this, a baby bird of prey, has a face only a mother could love ! They are so NOT ATTRACTIVE babies !!! LOL ! There hideous appearances give no hint to what amazing creatures they will grow to become !!!

I look at her with my head tilted to the side and in a soft voice I just say; You're so pretty !
