[FONT=Arial,Helvetica,Geneva,Sans-serif,sans-serif]What is “Osprey hacking”?[/FONT]
[FONT=Arial,Helvetica,Geneva,Sans-serif,sans-serif]“Hacking” is a procedure developed by falconers hundreds of years ago. “Falconry” is the art of training birds of prey to hunt in cooperation with a person. By raising young raptors in artificial aeries (nests), feeding them before and after fledging, and controlling their release, falconers discovered that the birds were easier to train.[/FONT]

CC, great shots. I guess I will have to go out and find some osprey. They say that there are some along our rivers. Just have to find them.

"He's coming right at us!" *Dives out control tower window* :mrgreen:

Excellent work as usual, sir.
