After a long weekend spent roaming the countryside, the adventuresome crew caught a kestrel, which my husband’s sponsor will take home and “man,” which means, “To acclimate a bird to your presence. A bird is said to be “well manned” when she is comfortable around people and accepting of their presence” according to The Modern Apprentice.

    During the long day of attempting to trap we watched a kestrel hovering in flight over a field, I was truly amazed by their beauty and grace.

    I wish my sponsor the best of luck with his new bird.

    You can watch how they hover in action on this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O-txnYnZDd4
