Texas Hawking at Balcones Canyonlands Expo

Ed, Joe and New Falconry Friends

The Texas Hawking Association was represented by THA members at the Balcones Canyonlands National Wildlife Refuge at the open house during National Wildlife Refuge Week. Dustin McCoy and Ed Thomas did a presentation of Falconry and flew Cash, Dustin’s Red-tailed hawk. Many new friends were educated and converted to falconry supporters during the day. Lots of visitors asked questions and took pictures of their kids with the hawks. The questions from the numerous youngsters were amazing and quite perplexing. Sallie Delahoussaye and Ed Sones did a raptor rehab presentation and brought along a few of their rehab birds. A good time was had by all and a lot of newcomers were introduced to Falconry and raptors.
