On January seventeenth 2014, we competed at the CHC Lure Flying Competition in Topaz Lake and raised the bar to a level of falconry that historically had never been done before. Vahe´ lure flew Shaman, Ginghis and Sitting Bull, 3 tiercel (male) peregrines at the same time and took 1st place. Keeping track of three dive bombing peregrines against a high noon blue sky without missing a beat is not an everyday visual.
“It has never been done before” said Kent Kearny of the Archives of Falconry, Peregrine Foundation.
A very well written article by David Pierson portraying falconry based bird abatement and it’s benefits to cherry, blueberry and wine grape growers. Many of Falcon Force clients are interviewed and their positive testimonies re-assure our effectiveness in agricultural avian pest management. The article is accompanied by a great video by Bethany Mollenkof illustrating a usual work day in the field protecting wine grapes.

A very interesting experience! Ace proved his ability as a stud super model, modeling with Jennifer Lawrence for Teen Vogue.
It was a pleasure meeting Jennifer and of course one of the giants of fashion photographers, Patrick Demarchelier. Ace on the other hand has become very ornery and is acting up his glitterati.
