I got Tyr back before I gave Ender away. Legally I can ‘bird sit’ for another falconer and I can fly the bird if I’m allowed to fly it at my level of classification.
So I’ve been bird-sitting Tyr and planned to fly him and hunt with him for a bit.
Unfortunately on our first day back into the field we had to leave our first field as someone was target shooting in the woods and almost hit us on accident. So we went to my rabbit field where Tyr collided with a high tension power line while chasing a rabbit.
He knocked his head and his wing, and it was really touch and go for a while there. I wasn’t sure he would make it. Luckily he had no broken bones and the vet got him all fixed up. We did our first free flight last weekend to make sure he could fly again and work him up with plenty of light exercise and rest.
Today he got fully back in the game and caught a squirrel.
What a whirlwind of an apprenticeship. My sponsor joking calls me DVM lol.
