A young goshawk is hooded by falconer aaron allred @allredaaron.
this large accipiter hawk requires relationship building for many months with aaron before it is ready to fly.
this is a series called ancient arts. despite a rapidly urbanizing world, many modern people feel the allure of ancient ways of life that are both physically demanding and spiritually rewarding. as the numbers of hunters and fishermen continue to decline, so have their historically powerful support for conservation of wildlands. with participation in nature vanishing, will there be a place for those who believe nature is more than a weekend museum?
