Thumbnail Filmstrip of Urban Goshawks - DVD, Pete Smith & Chris Soan, Yarrakk Films/Western Sporting Images
Pete Smith and Chris Soan, Yarrakk Films/Western Sporting, 2003, 20 minutes.
Pete Smith and Chris Soan have refined the technique of getting great flights on corvids (ravens, crows, rooks and magpies) with their tiercel goses into a fine art. These are the best accipiter flights we have seen on film and the hawks are tuned-in and know the game well. The DVD took three seasons to get enough flights on film for completion.
This DVD may be only 20 minutes but it is packed with good flights and an interview with the falconers. It is a good value!
Note: The rules and regulations concerning flying corvids vary greatly from one place to another. Be sure to check your own regulations carefully before attempting this type of flight.
