Really enjoy hearing experienced advice. Goshawks interest me most. I had an eyas female for 6 years, Jade. She was fantastic. Her only vice I think was that she was territorial about her mews. If she grabbed me it was usually on the leg; I would leave her and she was better the next day. I think she had separation anxiety when I raised her and introduced her to the mews.

Gos's are a little hard to trap in Arizona. If anyone out there has ideas how to procure a gos let me know. I would love to fly one again.

Also, I am heading to Ukraine and have been try to find out about their falconry program and falconers without success. Again, if you where to find info or have a contact, I would appreciate it. Thanks everyone.
