WOW, those are stunning birds. I've been interested in falconry for a while, reading about it a bit, and hope some day I can spend a day with someone who has a falcon, to see what it's like -- it's doubtful I will ever be able to do more than that, but I can dream.

You mentioned that he breeds them, have you got any pictures of the babies, parents caring for them, etc? Not sure about anyone else, but I'd find that fascinating -- I can understand if the breeding area is off-limits though, I know that you have to be really careful about exposing them to germs and things (I worked in a pet store at one time and had to go through a whole routine of sterilizing my hands, changing clothes etc. before I could go see the baby parrots; I assume all birds are similarly delicate).
