Peregrine Falcon

This young peregrine falcon belongs to a falconer in North Carolina. He's still in training with a falconer. It's very difficult to become a licensed falconer, there are fewer than 4,000 in the entire United States, and only a tiny fraction of those allow the public to participate in falconry experiences.
