Well aren't you just a cute little Merlin. :)
Apparently Mary Queen of Scots, Catherine the Great of Russia, and even Queen Elizabeth I were all avid falconers. So, this sport can be a ladylike occupation.
I am thinking of looking into getting started with some beginning falconry classes, and then, if everything goes well, either trap or buy a falcon of my own. We'll see. Never know, I may be introducing you to a new feathery friend of mine one of these days.
