The National Post published a brilliant feature on our very own falconer, Louise Engel. Count on Louise to tell it like it is and while she gives great information about hawking and how she uses Amadeus in the vineyard, she delivers it with quick wit and aplomb. There is a great video on the Post’s website as well. Please click through to view the article and video. We think you’ll enjoy!


“Hawks aren’t like a dog, they don’t have any loyalty to you in that sense,” Engel says. “You can’t scold them because they don’t care. They are like teenagers — they only love you because you feed them.”
