My friend Raul from Arkansas came to visit with his Aplomodo Falcons, and since we could not make it to the NAFA Meet in Texas we had our own mini meet here in Oklahoma. We had a great time flying birds, catching game, and eating Thanksgiving leftovers. We caught a couple of ducks with my hybrid and Raul's female Aplomado finished the weekend by catching a English Sparrow (which is actually a non-native weaver finch) with a amazingly quick wing over. I definitely have a new respect for the Aplomado falcon. Maybe someday in the future I'll try my hand at one. But for now I'll focus on what I got and the new silver Gyr that I am training. Here is a video from our "mini meet."
