The Winsor Room was filled with visitors, falcons, and falconers on June 14, 2014. We immersed ourselves in the fascinating world of birds of prey.
Here are some scenes from Saturday afternoon, starring Scar (about 3 years old) and Ferarri (about 15 years old). Scar got his name due to the digit he is missing. When he arrived in Pennsylvania, he had been injured in a fight and needed surgery to save his life. Dr. Len Donato from Radnor Veterinary Hospital, in Wayne, performed the surgery.
Many thanks to Dwight Lasure and Mark Rose from the Peregrine Club of Philadelphia, both falconers, who shared interesting facts and their personal stories with us.
