I just don't get why people want these birds without wanting to do right by them. Mind every time I go abroad now the hotels always have a bird of prey night in the bar where various birds are stroked and passed around the kids whilst having flashes from cameras going off in their faces. It pisses me right off and I always wonder how many from the thousands who watch these "shows" get back home and buy a Birdtrader cheap as chips bird of prey.

I'm off to the car boot this weekend see what I can pick up! Seen a lot of dogs about at boot sales but never a hawk.
Not that surprised !

Hope it goes ok and the bird is ok. No bad habbits !
ATB with the bird
