Hello everyone!

My name is Nick and I've been deeply interested in falconry since I was about 16. I'm now 46 and I've finally reached a point in my life where I have the time resources required to pursue my lifelong interest. I attended Hawkfest at the Lake Erie Metropark this past weekend. I was fortunate enough to speak with a few members of the Michigan Hawking Club and to get up close to the birds they brought (Peregrine, Harris, Kestrels and one very friendly Eurasian Eagle Owl).

I just filled out my membership paperwork for the Ohio Falconry Association and will be mailing it out tomorrow. I'm hoping to meet falconers in Ohio that can help me begin the process.

Thanks for reading my introduction!

Welcome to our obsession Nick! My name is Joe Dorrian and I am the OFA's Apprentice Director. Glad you got a chance to meet some of the MI guys. Did you by chance get the opportunity to attend the recent OFA picnic? If not, shoot me a pm and I can hook you up with a number of falconers up in your area. They're really good guys and fantastic falconers! Talk with you soon!
