Meet ” Headache ” a Red-tailed Hawk ( Falconry Bird )…I understand that folks may disagree with falconry and I do respect that.
Falconry was made legal in Manitoba in 1998, in order to have a bird a licence needs to be obtained form Manitoba Conservation who have strict guidelines in place.

I took advantage of the opportunity and spent some time with Headache and her handler Neil on their afternoon hunt. This will now be the 8th. bird I’ve worked with over the years.
