It is very important to get a new bird used to you when you first start the training process. They make positive associations with food so we try to get them used to the lure we will ultimate use while they eat as well as following up with an audible cue such as a whistle. Today was the first time this peregrine falcon ate off the lure and then she stepped to the fist to finish her meal.
Some new falconers have been added to the mix and we can’t wait to share the news officially. New birds are in training too and you are not going to be disappointed. Here is a little sneak peek at one of the new birds. She is a very large 1400g white Gyr Falcon.
