Well today out of a mixed flock of pintails, gadwalls, teal, and various divers, Quapa (the falcon) got the least glamorous duck possible. A hen hooded merganser. It was a very difficult and challenging setup, so I'm happy with the success. Any day you come home with your bird is a good day in falconry.

Guy, I can trade him off so I can keep the duck in good shape, but to reinforce some training lessons, I'm letting him eat some ducks as a reward. They really enjoy a crop of warm, bloody duck meat instead of cold quail.

Fallen Feathers, we're always looking for places to fly. If you're within two hours of DFW and it looks like you are since your location says Texoma, we could bring some birds up if you have good places to fly. Stock tanks in the middle of open fields or pastures are the best. Even one duck on a pond is flyable. Ponds need to be less than an acre, but they can be a bit bigger under the right circumstances. Basically, we need a pond with ducks and relatively open ground for a couple hundred yards. Let me know.

If anyone would like to see a falcon hunt, that offer is open to anyone with a decent place to fly the bird within two hours of DFW or if you are willing to come this direction as the season gets going and the birds get even more in shape.
