I came across this funny goshawking video today and I still can't stop laughing, even after the 20th time. No disrespect meant to the falconer, as I probably would have done the same...maybe not.

Yeah, you laugh, but that ONE time when he DOES catch it, you'll be saying "WOW!! DID YOU SEE THAT?!" hahaha!

Last year we were trying to sneak up on a group of Canada geese up against a big glass building but the Harris' bated and they all took off. Two of the geese smacked into the building knocking themselves a bit silly so I took off running. They came to when I was about 20 yards out and got into the air headed right for me. I just stuck my hand out and grabbed one by the neck as it flew over me! rockon

In retrospect, perhaps the Harris' flushed them on purpose for me. I knew Harris' were smart but WOW. :D

Looks like a real dangerous place to fly your bird. I moved out of California to get away from that type of flying.

I wish we had a video of training a hybrid on pheasants. The first pheasant we thru out about 50 yards from the trucks. The falcon came down smacked into the pheasant and then the pheasant made a bee line flight to the truck and flew right into the front window and hid under the driver side of the dash.

It was the funniest thing I had ever seen.
