Having worked several golden's, flew an 8 pound tiercel for 4 years that was an outstanding animal, all I can say about this person is one day, sooner or later, even the best of birds get their freak on, especially females during breeding season, and he'll be wearing this bird. Worst of it is she may actually grab someone else, like a little kid, not a good thing. Authorities should step in before this occurs and get the bird into qualified hands. Eagles, about as serious as raptors get.

Hey,

I've watched this guy a few times. The first video I saw was of him flying his new eyass Harris in woodland with oversized mews jesses on, clearly a recipe for disaster! That set the tone rather quickly as to what I thought of him. He has had a European Eagle Owl also which his training of it was something to behold, some poorly made DIY equipment was also being used. He did also have a Steppe Eagle as well as the Golden Eagle that has been mentioned. I know very little about Eagle Falconry although the way he handles the Eagles must encourage bad habits and will, no doubt, one day end up in himself getting hurt or someone else. He keeps that Eagle in a very small pen overnight where it can barely spread it's wings. You can sort of see from this rather cringey video, where the Eagle is kept overnight: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YwR2w6E8WEQ

Hopefully someone experienced intervenes.

Regards,

Bradley

I haven't seen him fly any of the Eagles. He flew/flies the Harris but nothing posted on him flying the Eagles.
