As several readers who communicate outside of the blog know, the redheaded falcon has been extremely wild and difficult. I had decided to send him back to the breeder and was feeding him to repletion every night.

But, as his weight rose, against all expectations he got tamer and tamer. He is now butter- fat, tolerating Ataika 100%, and still coming swiftly to the fist, at least indoors. So we will try a bit longer.

Actually I think so-- the behavior seems to be sticking. Bill discussed some precedents and I will forward. We think he still may be slow progressing but the corner is turned.

And I still want a Harris next year!
