After getting a briefing on how to fly these birds and taking a tour of the birds, the falconer took us out into the field. The first bird was a Snowy Owl.
And then settling down near one of the mole mounds.
And another titbit.
She observed something on the ground.
I like owls. They are majestic, they are whisper quiet, their eyes gleam with intelligence and then I grew up (and still do) worshipping Sarawati (the Goddess of Learning) whose familar is an Owl. Beautiful beautiful creatures.
Then she was taken back and put into her cage while they got the vultures out.
