Redtail on Rattlesnake. If you look closely his talon is inside the mouth. He probably caught 10 or so one season. Scared me to death everytime.

Here is a picture of Rocky my dog pointing a grouse. My bird was in the heavens. And a wild pigeon was flying by. The falcon started stooping, the pigeon tries to escape under the only open bit of safety. The dog stayed on point while the pigeon was killed right under the dog. I love this picture.

Second pic there DEFINITELY needs to be in a raptor or falconry calendar for a fall month!
(I'd love it if someone here would be interested in making a falconry calendar! I'll bet a bunch of the members here would volunteer their pics for a free calendar. I'd love to have one. It would be perfect for hanging in the mews/weighing room to scribble all your falconry notes and important dates...)

Lauren, That is beautiful. Very pretty, thanks! You have prospered in Arkansas, I think. Those shots could just as easily been in the Willamette Valley. Perhaps when you come home.

Tell us how you have found your hawk on kills with the neck bell. I know it is good.

Thanks! I do have a higher-resolution version that I printed out for myself, and if someone wanted to include it or any others I have, I'd be happy to share, of course. I love the calendar idea!

And thank you, Eric! I absolutely love the neck bell for my Coops. It's an imperative for hawking in this tall grass here, I feel. Not only for on kills, but for when she misses and runs around on foot in the grass looking for her bird. Makes life a lot easier on me!

It is! Or something - my wife took that one and yeah, she enhanced it - gave it that old-photo look. But it came out nice!

Looking good John! That pigeon has beautiful scarlet plumage.

Thanks John, but, its not me, its the camera. I get so many opportunities to catch this bird in the stoop. Just about every time out he goes up. I hope he continues doing it this next season.

Crap Tanner, I thought that was Pete's bird. Feel free to rub that bird as much as you want....:D
