Default 'Barrabas' - Vernon Brown bred Imprint Male Goshawk

Hello to the forum,
Last saturday we took delivery by courier a male goshawk bred by mr vernon brown, i have called him Barrabas.
He is bred out of vernons "myra" by kev whittle and "sinbad" by mick kane two good hawks proven in the hunting field, he will be a brother to vernons hunting hawk "Ivan".
Today he will be 25 days old he is in the house with us at the moment being dish fed three times a day, he has just started to find his feet exploring the living room and attempting to climb the furniture, his plumage is starting to grow through and is looking pretty pale on his breast.
This year seems to be a unbelieveable amount of rabbits bred in my area, they are all over the place, i might just start him off on these instead of the crows, we will have to wait and see.
Keith

If Barrabas is anything like his elder Bruva Ivan he should mop them rabbits up.

Barrabas took a light lunch today and then settled down in front of the television watching royal ascot, he was most interested in the runners and riders.
