Two days later a third peregrine was in the area of the quarry but it was chased off by the tiercel .
On the morning of Day Seven, I fly the tiercel to the fist again for a tidbit; that evening, I repeat the process.
In three weeks the tiercel was flying free, a phrase that barely touches on the facts.
These two tiercels were not special; they were just average hawks that were correctly imprinted.
The general rule is that the tiercels fly with more verve, are more maneuverable, and are therefore better equipped to handle the smaller quarry such as doves.
