    It brings up a question for sure...we have permits to "enter" nest sites and one might argue that drones are much less invasive that climbing the tree or other trees to look in in person. Having said that, the thought of drones around nest sites is still a scary concept to me in terms of stress and potential injury to the nesting pair if the act aggressively.

    Neat shot of a friends Aplomado coming in for some pigeons. I just thought it came out neat with it being all silhouette on an overcast background.

    Sorry, I didn't see this before.

    I watched 3 red tail and 3 cooper nests this year with it, pics and video clips from all. I had no "close calls" I had one female red tail after the hatch leave the nest into a soar and yell at the drone but never more than "intimidation" tactics. One male coops would come into and buzz, but never get closer than around 20'. If the male showed up I would simply take a vertical climb and return the drone and land.

    Nesting females showed no interest in leaving the nest or what the drone was doing. In fact, I even have a video clip of a mother red tail bringing food in and standing on the nest feeding week old chicks.

    Not as a result of that immediate flight however the same day.





    Connection pictures weren't taken by me, but the falconer himself (somehow he can carry a camera with a 2 foot lens and fly a bird... beats me how he does it lol).

    My first bird in nearly 20 years - a late trapped kestrel. She reminded me of many lessons I forgot and taught me some I never knew. So happy to be back and looking forward to a new season and a new hunting partner!

    2 weeks after trapping:

    Here's a few from my first falconry season with my first bird. I had an absolute blast!

    Thanks Paul! I can't take credit for the first one, my friend's husband took it at the GLFA meet.

    I'm without a raptor right now, for the first time in many years. Breeze is out raising young with his female; Smoke was released right after her first kill. The planned bilateral foot surgery has been done; am now in "feet up and don't walk" mode. Bored! So, here's a photo of my new Belgian Tervuren pup - he's doing great, but sure doesn't understand why we don't get out for our 3-5 mile walks everyday like we used to! Here's Darboshea Troubadour - "True" - enjoying a walk with me prior to surgery. Can't wait for late summer/early fall, when we can get out and trap a new Red-Tail!

    I dropped and lost my phone out hunting couple months ago. Lost all my pitchers.

    Peregrines last flight today. Releasing her once this coming snow storm passes, prob this Thursday. Been lure stooping her hard the past couple weeks, 2x/day. At this point, I am tired of swinging the thing well before she is tired flying it. She is fit, strong, healthy, and ready to go.

    Here is to the next one. For you and me both, Deb.

    LOL! That could be fun! We typically walk a four mile loop in the national forest, 5-6 days a week. Well. I walk it. True RUNS it and a lot more as he is constantly circling, goes out ahead, coming back past me, just to zoom back out to the front, etc. Fun times! When feet are healed, will be right back at it again! :-)
