Urban Falconer- Weight control

Taka is finally coming down in weight. Today I got her to 1177g and she flew to the fist before I could pull out the meat. I suspect that I almost there. I trapped her on the 14th of Oct and it is exactly 10 days today that her weight has come down enough to where she is flying and looking keen. I think she is going to be a great hawk to hunt with. She has some personality. I want to give her the utmost respect and take care of her so that she can be a killer in the woods. I suspect that If I bring her weight down 7 more grams than she is going to be just right. Now she still is a bit all over the place. I just need her attention. More to follow......
