Tyr’s first free flight today! He did absolutely perfectly! Came to the glove whenever I called (sometimes when I didn’t) and followed like a champ. I couldn’t be more happy. <3

Here are a couple of links to youtube videos of him free flying. Warning: The first one contains mild swear words. I couldn’t censor myself in my panic/euphoria.

This is Maxine (Max) she’s a 3lb Redtail Hawk and is a sweetheart despite her size, she literally dwarfs Lady and her claws are so frickin’ cool, I get all weird and Jurassic park brained when I see raptor claws and she’s no exception! You can see she’s sporting a nice little raptor Mohawk because she’s still got a little moulting to do.
