The Falconer’s Apprentice

So I’ve been working with the On The Wing raptors for a month now as part of the Avalon Pest Bird Abatement Team.  The bird I have below is Pastor, a Harris Hawk. We just got finished doing a walk around town surveying the seagull and pigeon scene downtown.  Very few out today.  They must be at Descanso Beach.

Here’s one of those take a picture with your cell phone deals:

The first of the Bird Cards are here!  The series of Stat Cards for the PBA Team will highlight each bird.  Collect the whole set!  They’ll be a $1 donation per card and the proceeds will go towards feeding the birds (it costs $50 a day to feed all seven birds).

I have also added a Falcon Factoid section to my weekly radio program, LifeLines, that airs from 11:30 – 1:30 on Monday lunchtimes on KISL 88.7 FM.   Fair Winds on the Air Waves!
