    Thought I would post a few pictures of some of the birds I have worked over the years. I have literally hundreds of pictures of various birds and displays I have done but didn't think it would be good to post them all so just picked a couple.

    Holly- Saker Falcon

    Esmerelda - Harris Hawk

    Frodo - Barn Owl. He carries rings down the aisle at weddings :)

    I hope everyone enjoyed looking at the birds as much as I enjoy working with them!

    Thanks

    Wow very impressiv.
    And a good example that nature is the best designer.
    At my workplace we have also an eagle, it is good to see that they come back.

    Glad everyone likes them :)

    Yes its a my job, getting paid for what is essentially my hobby means I always enjoy getting up for work!

    I worked originally in zoos before moving into dedicated falconry centres. I am now a freelance falconer working for a few different centres and parks. I also run an animal encounter business so have a few other animals around the house but its the birds that I really love the most :)
