We are excited to announce that Greg Ames, master falconer, has graciously agreed to give a presentation at our August program. Mr. Ames has been practicing falconry for 13 years. He has two birds — a Red Tail Hawk who accompanies him on hunting trips, and a barn owl that enjoys a life of leisure as his pet. Mr. Ames’ unique experience is a wonderful foundation where he can share his insights on the pursuit of falconry and birds of prey.
