    We keep a Barn Owl, not for flying to hunt though they can be used in this way, she's just a rescued imprint, but such a character.

    Hi Hornet
    I have had birds of prey for 23 years, I have Peregrine falcons, Goshawks and Gyr/Peregrines, I hunt with a female Goshawk and she is flying at 2lb 14 oz. she is parent reared so is a good size bird. I also breed the birds i keep and have bred birds for years and hatch a lot out for other friends.
    If you want I can post Pictures on here but dont want to offend anyone.
    All the best

    Personally I'd love to see them.

    I was lucky enough to attend one of the 'give it a go' falconry days at the Hawk Conservancy Trust near Andover and I have to say that it was brilliant - so much so that we subsequently booked for a day hunting Harris Hawks near Auchterarder on our next trip up North.

    Out of interest, why would you think that anyone would be offended??

    Hi Paul,

    Been a supporter of Harris Hawks for over 25 years and had at least one during that time. Currently flying a large male( flys at 1lb 14oz but has caught rabbits an ounce higher). He was bought for my son but alas be has now moved on to women and booze!! Sadly I lost my American imported female a few months ago, she had a heart attack. She was in her twentys and I had her from 12 weks old, a great bird. I am sure you will have a great time with your new bird and I wish you well.

    Kind regards

    Apparently they should be called Harris's hawks.
