OK, we got the Super Bowl accomplished. We had a great party with out living room packed and cheering. And the best part, it was a good game.
Very quiet right now. It is almost like we are in an earlier century here at the moment. Good time to blog in the peace of the morning while being in another time.
Ah, perfect, yes, here is a report about happenings here at Raven Ranch that really do harken from other times. I have a friend that has a daughter that is currently training to be a falconer. Yes, someone that is capable of handling falcons and hawks. How about that for exotic.
Anaca is the woman and Abe is the hawk, a young male Redtail. She has been working with the bird for several months since trapping it up along the Skagit River here in Western Washington. This is all highly regulated by the Washington State Department of Fish and Wildlife and overseen by a state wide group of experienced falconers. Anaca will have to complete a two year apprenticeship ultimately.
So, she has chosen our north pasture as a training area. She had the first session several days ago and Wiley and at were able to observe the goings on. So amazing. I know that there has been a lot of cool things that have occurred here at the ranch but here is another worthy of note. Enjoy the pics, will try and get some better ones for you in the future.
Have to go and walk the trail in a few moments, overcast and dry with the temp in the fourties F. Take care, buoy up, love, Felipe.
