You haven’t seen happiness until you’ve seen 7 rats in a box of (pet safe) packing peanuts

Sometimes I think my hawk is really cute and sweet, but then he gives me this look and I’m pretty sure he’s plotting to muder me and steal my soul

Ollie is Back in the Sky!

We have lift off! It’s been about 3 weeks since Ollie’s injuries and he is officially flying again!  I did some practice flights in the house with him the other day and he was looking really good, so I decided to take him outside for a test run today. I did lure flights with him to get him moving and he did quite well! He was able to steer, gain height, and stoop, though he definitely looked a little awkward in the air. The best way to describe it would be that he was taking too many flaps for the speed he was going (like he was compensating and had to work hard to stay in the air) and he would wobble a little as he went (like a helicopter that’s having trouble steering). He also tended to skid when he landed on flat surfaces (brakes not 100% yet). In other words, he has a way to go, but he’s getting there!

I’m torn between two options now. The first is to continue his period of inactivity in the mews so he can continue to rest and heal. The second is to start flying him regularly so he can build condition back up and practice flight skills again. Decisions, decisions…
