I'm back from Vermont and loved, loved, loved the state and the people. It was my second trip there and I thoroughly enjoyed myself. I've got scads of photos but I'll start with the high point: The British School of Falconry located in Manchester, Vermont. I got to work with a Harris hawk called 'Sky'. She was a sweetie and weighed less than a pound and a half. We got to toss the hawks into the air [that's to allow them to find a draft of air to fly on] and then summon them back to roost on our hands. I had a blast and of course picked up a book on falconry. :) Carol

Holy Bombshell, Carol! I bet this experience of yours is going to show up on a book someday. Can't wait to read all about it!

Very COOL, Carol. BTW, I have a friend here in Ft.Lauderdale that works with Falcons. If you need any other info.
