Touching the Sky

Dr. Bernadine Cruz  on Pet Life Radio

Falconry…what does this word bring to mind?  You may envision the European nobility riding through the countryside with a majestic hawk on their outstretched leather enveloped hand.  Using hawks and falcons for hunting dates back to ancient times.  Few people still hunt with birds but falconry enables these spectacular creatures to enjoy a symbiotic relationship with man.  They also serve an important role as sentinels to the health of our planet.

I had the pleasure of visiting with two licensed falconers in San Diego California, at Sky Falconry, where I was privileged to fly a trained bird and for a little while touch the sky through the wings of a Harris hawk.
