Back in the saddle again. Unfortunately, I lost my first bird due to an untreatable eye infection. I took a year learning more about avian health and diseases. Trapped 1200g female this past weekend. Can't wait to get back into the field. I hated to lose that first (or any) bird. However, I firmly believe that it has caused me to become a more knowledgeable Apprentice and a better falconer.
