I’m just finishing “H is for Hawk” by Helen Macdonald. I’m surprised by the amount of positive press the book is getting considering it is about a woman training a Northern Goshawk to fly. The book is so well-written that it appeals to people even if you aren’t interested in birds or falconry.
Last year I was able to get this picture of a Northern Goshawk at the PGT. Justin Robertson brought her out to fly as I took pictures. Goshawks are amazing birds; very powerful and intense.
