@maudethewoodelf - Learning & teaching: passing on our cultural heritage. Today for the #WorldFalconryDay, @joaniela_birdtrainer & I (& Nopalito & Kerrigan), did a presentation in front of kids to talk about falconry & passing our passion. In Québec there's not a lot of people practicing the art but I think there is few future falconers in the way now!! . "We want to value the work of masters – those falconers who, in addition to doing things well, daily share their knowledge and experience. With their teaching vocation they channel new falconers into responsible falconry." - International Association Of Falconry ( @wwgiaf @iaf_falconry ) . . . #worldheritage #iaf #wwgiaf #falconry #unesco #falconer #birdsofprey #birdofprey #hawk #falcon #raptor #falconryday #heritage #hawking - #regrann
Shooting at eagles is always a fun day in late fall. Most people go to Conowingo with the hopes of catching these captivating birds locking talons in mid-air or grabbing a big fish out of the water at close range. While I also enjoy these action shots, I also always hope to walk away with a couple images that are a little different, maybe getting an image that maybe snuck past most of the other 300 photographers that line up to witness the spectacle. Earlier this week I got to shoot with 3 good friends there and while most of the action was out far, I did manage a few keepers, including this one. With dark storm clouds behind the birds and afternoon sun providing filtered front light, we all got really excited knowing that these conditions can create powerful images. As we started to grab a few scenic images from a distant bird, I smiled because the large group to our right, sat quietly waiting for the "action." My favorite images of the day had nothing to do with dramatic action, it had to do with dramatic light.

Apollo is super fun to work with. Whilst owls are huge characters I lean more towards hawks and falcons. They pick learning up much more quickly than owls and tend to be more enthusiastic about training. That being said; owls are deinfintly the most fun to fly! Q: What birds do you like working with/ want to work with? A: I'd love to do some lure work with a falcon. Also flying a Golden Eagle would be a dream ❤️ 🐥Peregrine x Prairie Falcon🐥 #ebbwvale #ebbwvaleowlsanctuary #raptor #talons #owlsanctuary #peregrinefalcon #prairiefalcon #falcon #falconer #falconry #hybridfalcon #bird #birdofprey

“Posing” The aplomado falcon is a medium-sized falcon of the Americas. The species' largest contiguous range is in South America, but not in the deep interior Amazon Basin. . . . . . #falcons #falconry #aplomadofalcon #aplomado #naturyst #naturevisions #birdofprey #birdsofprey #raptor #natureporn #animalsofinstagram #loveit #nature #natura #instanature #bird #birds #wildlife #animal #animals #wild #tagsta #tagsta_nature #birdstagram #animale #birdportrait #fujifilmx_us #fujifilm_xseries #fujixt2
I haven't worked #BirdsOfPrey since my days at the @bhamzoo. But it feels great to have a bird back on the glove! #Aurora is a #eurasianEagleOwl, the largest of owl species. She's a nervous bird and we've made great strides getting her used to the glove!
