I used to do Camera Critters, it seems like a long time ago. I am not sure what happened, if it disappeared or I did, but suddenly it is showing up on my Reader list again and I am happy to have it as an option, because I often get pictures of critters that don't necessarily fit in my posts.
This is a hybrid Peregrine/Gyr Falcon mix that was flown for a group of us that are involved in the Northern Illinois Raptor Center. There were two of these hybrids. I did a post on one of them that was in training and was flown on a creance line here. This is a fully trained, experienced bird that during the demonstration took down a lure that was being flown much higher on a kite. He was free flying and returned once he had capture his prey. It was an amazing demonstration of a powerful and skilled hunter.
