We traveled to rural Ohio recently to learn a little about falconry. This session took place at the Medina Chapter of the Izaac Walton League. It was a thrill and a great learning experience.

The program was offered by the Ohio School of Falconry. Joe, our instructor was knowledgeable, patient, funny and kind. He obviously has a passion for the sport and also for teaching. Kudos also to his apprentice, Haley. They worked well with the birds and seamlessly geared the talk both to the 10 year old in the group, as well as the rest of us slightly older folks. We learned a lot about raptors and about the sport of falconry and the dedication needed to be successful raising and training a bird.

Here are some of the photos of the birds. I highly recommend this program.
