Pictured left with me is Chokky, a Harris Hawk in his first year.

I work part time at Cheshire Falconry but Chokky is my own bird.

The videos below are of me flying Chokky.

His second year

Above is Chokky in his second year. His plumage has darkened.

 

It's not easy to capture long winged falcons in flight because they fly so fast. The next video is a first person view of what it's like to fly Pedro, a Lanner Falcon to the lure.
