Crimson by MischievousRaven Crimson by MischievousRaven
"I do not hunt for the joy of killing but for the joy of living, and the inexpressible pleasure of mingling my life however briefly, with that of a wild creature that I respect, admire and value.”

My falconry bird, a male Red-Tailed Hawk named "Phoenix." He's my 6th falconry bird and we're at the beginning of his second season together (my 9th season).

Falconry is hunting wild game with trained birds of prey. Falconry is not pet-keeping. Falconry is a highly regulated form of hunting in the USA, and applicants must pass a written examination, an inspection of facilities and equipment, complete a two-year apprenticeship under a more experience falconer, acquire hunting lands, an avian vet, supplies, and so much more.

Great picture. A good friend of mine, just caught the 10,000 bird of the year at the reserve, it was a a Cedar Waxwing.  I never studied or trained in ecology or wildlife, but I can't help but find some calming about natures processes.

Beautiful!! I think it'd be really neat to do falconry someday. I don't know much about it right now though.
