Default Estimating Pitch

This is interesting! Seems the weight of the falconer might affect how high he thinks his falcon flies!

I don,t think falconers need any weight gain to make them exaggerate the pitch their falcons make.

That explains a lot

Although when it comes to Hawks the more active and speedy the falconer the better the bird, I've found the birds sense the urgency in the falconer, well that's my view, most fat b strds fly gosses which always makes me giggle

I'll go get my flack jacket
