(please note, these birds have "anklets" around their legs used
by the falconers to add a leash so they can be held on the glove)

We cannot 100% guarantee all of the above birds will fly, as
we all know, anything can happen between now
and our shooting date, but I do promise a good show.
The snowy owl will fly during the cooler / cold weather.
