H is for Hawk

Helen Macdonald’s best-selling book H Is for Hawk, is a favorite here at Sky Falconry. This book walks the reader through her journey as a grieving daughter who found healing in training a goshawk.  Her recent story has now premiered on BBC and PBS Nature, where she digs deeper into the world of raptors by following a family of goshawks in the wild and raising one of her own.

We were honored to have hosted the composer of the music for H is for Hawk, Cody Westheimer, at our private Sky Falconry Ranch in Alpine, California, 30 miles east of San Diego. Cody joined us from Los Angeles for a Private Hawk Walk. Being a raptor enthusiast, he felt compelled to experience what it was like to free fly a bird of prey to the glove on this outdoor raptor adventure offered in Southern California. Cody’s passion was contagious. We all had an amazing time, including our Harris’ Hawk, Hayduke!
