Ah, Moro: you have captured the short-term brain of the goshawk perfectly! I know that she doesn't think it's food, though, or at all tasty. If she did, it would be too dangerous to play with her!

She's usually even more playful, turning her head right upside down, and making little squeaks. But I think the camera was a little offputting.

I am ashamed. I have a goshawk I'm playing with. As if she were a house cat. Bad falconer. Tut tut :)

Why is it bad to play? "Softens" the animal? I've just found your blog and am enchanted by your writing. And by Mabel *thump thump*.
