Moulting Update for September

Moulting Update for September

Well, here we are at the end of September.  Hunting season is just around the corner and Tahoe’s feathers are in prime condition for another hunting season.  I recently sent this photo to a friend of mine who remarked: “Wow, is that the same bird?” and the answer of course, is “yes.”  Tahoe has moulted all her feathers and the process seems to be complete. There are less feathers in the mews this week and the only feathers that constantly appear are the small, white fluffly down feathers, which seem to continuously shed anyway.  She is quite magnificent now with her dark wings, bright tan-orange front, and her stunning red tail.

Looking forward to a second great hunting season!
