    Default a couple raptor pics

    While attending the Ren Fest, there was a woman presenting about the practice of falconry and which types of birds were permitted to the peasants and which were the sole province of the nobility. Only got a few shots in -- it was a hot day and she (understandably) didn't want the birds to get overheated so the show was quite short.

    I am sure that first one pictured could only be owned by the nobility. Beautiful birds, all!

    Beautiful photos and wonderful birds. I wanted to get into falconry years ago, but felt I didn't have the time and space for the bird. In this state, you get to catch your first bird, usually a red-tailed hawk, from the wild. At least at that time you did.
