1st Hunt! She did great. Came when called to the fist. I ended up hunting her from the fist mostly just to better control what was going on. No rabbits flushed but that’s how it goes. I’ll try to get her out again in the next few days in another location. #falconry#redtailedhawks#rabbithawking
Speaking of Red-Tailed Hawks: moments after observing the pair of Cooper’s Hawks (thanks for the ID help!), we heard them before they came soaring in.
It turns out the Eucalyptus grove is a raptor hangout. #birdsofafeather
🎶I just took a DNA test, turns out I’m 100% that bird🎵 - that’s right, folks! Jack, our beloved education red tailed hawk, is a female! Our #wildliferehab staff and our vets at @wildlifecenter_va had thought for years that Jack was a male due to her size, as male #redtailedhawks are generally smaller than females. However, we recently had Jack tested juuuuust to make sure. And we were wrong! We’ve had Miss Jack for 5+ years and are looking forward to many more with our fabulous flying friend.
What an incredible kick-off to the Jersey Court Kings “Best Of 5” Showcase. The Sea Robins were up 101-89 in the 4th with about 10 minutes left, when @eliotarazi injured his knee. Shortly afterwards, the Robins held a 14 point lead (111-97), with 7 & change on the clock! Then, came a historic comeback. A turn of fortunes, the Robin’s have yet to come to grips with! A comeback that was albeit, an injured Eliot Arazi (Departed game w/4:30 left).. & rightfully so, he was flame throwing, all game long. Right after his departure, Robin’s took an 8 point lead (113-105) on an @abe_r_cohen triple, with 4 minutes to play.
All things considered, this was a much earned Hawks win & brutal collapse by the Robin’s. The hawks battled an ejection & at times, a lack of chemistry & cohesion on the defensive end. Multiple times, a lack of communication was at the forefront of the Hawks demise... BUT just as the Native specie they represent, the Hawks adapted to the various climates of the game. They weathered through the turmoil. The Hawks unwavering commitment & mental fortitude ultimately, won out.
The run was sparked by the elder leadership, court control & unrelenting defensive communication of @joeybraha. The young electric Kevin Haddad, who starred to the tune of 41 & 15! Consistent shot making by @dendweck & steady point guard play from @joeydayon. Let’s not forget, @a_braha was “Bagging groceries at the Rim” all game long, accumulating 20+ rebounds (20/20 game) & creating enough extra shots for the Hawks to secure the victory. The Hawks outscored the Robins 26-5, over the final 7 & change!! A BLITZ to the finish! #Game1#JerseyCourtKings#RedTailedHawks#ComeFlyWithMe#Camaraderie#StartConjuring#Storylines#Game2#YouHeardItHere
