Falconry at Gleneagles- 09.26.10

afalconry0.jpg Took a little walk down to the British School of Falconry at Gleneagles today (ok, so, i crossed the maze of hedges - seriously, like a maze for kids to play in - and the tennis courts, and was at the falconry school!) ~ and it was absolutely mesmerizing watching the birds that were out in the viewing cages! So gorgeous… there’s something incredibly inspiring about these stunning birds of prey… also, i realized they almost always look sad/angry, but do make some impressively stern expressions… and i took a ton of pics. There are Steppe Eagles, Golden Eagles, Peregrine Falcons, and Harris Hawks. Go take a peek on the next page for some falconry fun!

Firstly ~ you’ve got to check out this fun panoramic movie they made!

Ahhhhhh, nifty! I guess the ferret isn’t “prime eating” for the falcons then, or they’re smart enough not to go out into the open where they’d get swooped up for ferret tartare. Bonus points for a sweet Beastmaster reference!

sooooo the ferret goes and chases rabbits out from below ~ and falcon grabs em. think of that beastmaster show…

I have to know, what’s the ferret for, 5 pics up from the bottom? And did you get to see them hunt also? So cool!!
