Home Again

I will do my utmost– for my own sake, if no-one else’s– to start posting here again. I made a number of mistakes during my first attempt at this… too many updates, too neurotic about writing daily, and too much of a hope that I would get reinforced by outside feedback (mostly because I hope other people find these birds as amazing as I do). Then, some frustrating things happened at work and I got pulled out of training for months, which started a depressing cycle. I could see behaviours we’d worked hard on breaking down, but could not do anything about it. Needless to say, this was difficult to watch.

Luckily, a break came at just the right time: I just came back from my first IAATE conference, and boy has it kick-started me. Not only am I going to do whatever I need to do to get back to training, but I’m also going to keep track of it in a more reasonable fashion (ie: updates when it isn’t stressful to do so). I am so excited to get started again, and also to get the birds back on track.

We are back in the game. I’ll give an update on the birds soon!

    YAY! I’m so glad you’re back! I was wondering what happened when all of a sudden updates just vanished. I love following you and the birds, I just never had enough thoughts in my brainmeats to form into any sort of cohesive unit for commenting.

    I’m interested in getting into falconry (when I have the funds and equipment), and your experiences in it are just so fun to read. It gets me even more motivated for falconry.

    • Thank you for the kind words! I’ve been thinking of getting my licence as well, but I don’t know if I have the time to train my own bird on top of everyone at work! 🙂
