Filters can be a fun way to use images for a variety of projects.

Falconry

falconry is not a lost hobby

Adam’s Falconry Service is a dynamic and complex service helping to control an over abundance of invasive species, such as rodents, in sensitive areas. Adam is not only a very likeable guy, his knowledge and experience is based on many decades of working professionally with falcons and other raptors. He’s fully licensed and his birds are obviously very well taken care of. Beautiful raptors worth seeing up close.
