Harry's Hawk

Recommended Posts

Just some pic's of my female sparrowhawk, Xena on magpies.She only flies at 8 1/2ozs (approx.250 grms) but she has a lot of heart flying at feral pigeons at more than twice her weight.But magpies and jackdaws are her favoured quarry.

Great pictures Harry, shouldn,t you have a Harris Hawk ?

(Harris Hawk/ Harry,s Hawk, geddit ? :D  )

 

The Sparrowhawk looks so small up close, its a wonder it can knock down something, as big as a pigeon.

If your prime quarry is magpies, you won,t go short of targets. :(

Harry thats a nice spar you got there have you tried her on woodcock. My mates going to fly one next year as the rabbit situation around us is a bit grim  and we cant find enough to keep a h/hawk busy. With a spar youll never be short of quarry thats for sure. He also flies a saker/peregrine at crows and in august sept he flies a merlin at larks.  He tried a imprint pure peregrine this year at crows but she jibbed them after being mobbed once.

Harry are you on the workingterrier site aswell i recognise your motto from somewhere i think it was on the falconry forum on that site. If you are i think youll find us mutch more agreeable and less argumentitive than most of the members on that sight. So welcome harry hope to see some posts from you soon.
