“Look Up & Wave Your Glove”

This documentary offers an intimate view of falconry and three longwingers flying their peregrines and hybrids at grouse in Montana.  I certainly admire the passion they have to the sport, but they’ve sacrificed a lot to do it – leaving friends and family to move into the foothills of the Rockies.  While I love falconry I feel that there’s a balance to be stuck between flying your bird and life outside of it, such as family and work.  the telemetry chases they have to make to recover their birds is a bit much as well.  It makes me appreciate my red-tail and the fact that they generally hunt close to the falconer.  Still, it’s a fun movie to watch if you have an hour.
