A Visit to Falcon Mecca, Rochester NY

After a few years of change with quite a lot of turmoil in the Rochester falcon world, there is one, adorable fledgling, Orion.  These are my first fab favs.

Orion really does fly – like an adult most of the time
To prepare for flight, he hops, jumps, runs, kaks and flaps – back and forth
Lift off!
“Told you I could do this”  (notice the very full crop)
Beauty still feeds him beak to beak even though he can eat on his own
Training time. Beauty tells Orion, “This is how you do it, dear.”
Orion says, “You mean like this?”
Dot.Ca, Orion’s father, brought in a pigeon to feed Orion, too.

I primarily photograph eagles and peregrine falcons. I do include many other birds and some mammals.
