This is why we are reintroducing perigine falcons.

I have a wife and 2 kids that I can only attribute to a wiggle, a giggle, and the realization that she was out of my league so I might as well be happy with her as a friend. 26 years marriage later, I can't imagine life without her. -Me 10/7/09

Here is the "local" breeding pair page. http://rfalconcam.com/rfc-main/mainView.php By local I do not mean around the corner from my house, but the city that I work in. I do not work for Kodak. Those birds sure do a good job. It is amazing to watch them actually snag a Wock on the wing. one minute a bunch of Wocks, next a puff of feathers and one less Wock.

As a surrogate (on behalf of my human,vic ), advocate of the general rehabilitation of Wocks, into the community as useful members of society, I feel the above is a little harsh. I doubt if the Wock in question sees the event, as of the genre: `Amazing` :shock:

Wocks, so harassed, have been know to gather together, and then crap, en masse over the heads of falcons and senjays.

Fluff,

As I am sure you are aware, the standard Wock is just a rat with wings. While we are "blessed" with an atypical Wock who has shown us that not all Wock's are mere rodents, the Wock population is out of control in our area. One can not sit and eat a hot dog or hamburger in safety due to Wock attacks.

While I generally agree that rehabilitation is preferred to capitol punishment we are talking rodents. You know rats, mice, squirrels, and the like. Am am sure as a natural rodent hunter you would appreciate the falcons "Wock dispatch" capabilities. I dare say that if you were to witness them for yourself you might even venture to whisper "amazing" yourself.

Most people have trouble coming up with good character names, But for fiction writers, it’s harder because you have to come up with a dozen or so character names for every single story. More: studymoose.com
