I promised that whenever I was stuck for things to write I'd put up an old photo from longlong ago.
So here we are.
My mother was into falconry when I was kid. Well she still is but doesn't have any birds at present.
And we had these two Lizard Buzzards. One was hers and one was mine. A male and a female. And my mom, she taught me all the things to do. We made all the jesses for their feet and the lures and everything. And we (tried) to teach them to hunt and they came to our welding gloved hand at the blow of a whistle. Not necessarily the most agile or quick to learn creatures in the world but I loved my bird so!
