it was a harris hawk named eddie. the guy at the falconry booth flirted w me and gave me a discount. i learned so much bout the relationship of birds of prey to humans. really humbling and brought me a lot of clarity. they don't "love" or "trust" or whatever, its strictly a working and logical relationship. it made falconry less romantic and more practical, almost mathematical. eddie was so agile and just hopped around in the trees staying close and very A to B thought process. fukin baller
