This blog is designed to help us keep a journal of our falconry events. Gun is a Tercel Anatum Peregrine Falcon which is being trained by Dal McBride and was bred by Eric Steinhauer. These birds of prey are the fastest living things and can reach speeds of up to somewhere between 200 and 300 mph.

Check out the sequential images, videos, friends, and other bird pic pages located to the right side of the screen. I will be sure to keep these pictures and videos coming! (All images © Darvil B. McBride)
