Save us from ourselves!

YOU GUYS I went falconing for the first time yesterday. We went to Arran and got to handle four birds: a hybrid falcon, an eagle- (or, in North America, Horned) owl, a Harris hawk and a buzzard. The falcon was amazing, she ate a chick from my hand (a somewhat disconcerting experience for vegetarian me. And, as it turns out, chicks are full of recognizable YOLK). The owl was adorable, I'd take him home in a second. And the hawk and the buzzard are the ones we actually got to fly, which was a whole other kind of amazing, watching the way they adjusted their flight to land on you. The whole thing was quite thrilling, and I absolutely recommend it for those without crippling fear of birds...

Just a reminder, this Thursday, May 27th, I will be at Strange Adventures in Halifax, Nova Scotia between 4pm and 8pm, hanging out and signing books and slowly depleting my hug supply. Also, I will be selling my new book, and the 2nd ASW collection! Please come!

Then, Wednesday June 2nd, I'll be at Westminster Books in Fredericton, NB.
