Brown Falcon: Snake Handler

Brown Falcon, Falco berigora

+======================+

A week ago they were being fed tiny portions of food by Cassia, of Cinnamon.

Now they have passed the "Hunting on the Ground" training.

 

We found this one engaged in lunch with a small snake, perhaps about 1 metre. Obviously it didn't catch it as the adult male brought it in from the surrounding paddocks.

However it certainly had no difficulty in dealing with the hapless creature on the ground before taking the remains off to enjoy a canopy top meal.
