Hello to all!

My name is Astrid. I became interested in falconry from the first grade. A book, My Side of the Mountain, sparked my interest and other books continued it. From then on I have always wanted to fly a falcon, but never knew how to begin. Recently I decided to do something about it, and began to research how to become a falconer. I was overjoyed to discover falconry is still a sport, and has a wonderful community of dedicated, passionate people. I am studying to take my examination, and hopefully, once I pass it, get a sponsor. This forum is such a fantastic opportunity to learn and grow. Blessings to you all and a warm thank you!
