<p>Hey folks!</p>
Being that it’s summertime and I work at a school, my funds are somewhat limited at the moment and I’m trying to supplement them by rebooting my product offerings in my craft store. So I’m excited to announce two new products: personalized water bottles/coffee tumblers and vinyl record art! 

<p>Basic price list for cups/bottles: 
</p>
<p>Small water bottle(17 oz)- $15 or two for $20</p>
<p>Medium coffee tumbler (20 oz)-$25</p>
<p>Large coffee tumbler (30oz)-$35-$40</p>

<p>They can be coated in glitter, lightly glittered, or no glitter at all. All drinking implements are coated in a few layers of epoxy resin, so the paint will never come off.</p>
<p>

Vinyl art $15-25, I offer abstract designs and I can monogram them or stencil on short phrases.

Golden eagles make this sound when receiving allopreening and similar affectionate and soothing treatment from their parents and mates. It’s the “I am safe and well fed, and somebody familiar is taking good care of me” sound. Angry raptors and wounded raptors make some pretty dramatic hisses and shrieks; frightened raptors go dead silent and try to hide if they can, or fluff up big and get loud and in-your-face if hiding isn’t an option. They can easily sever a finger or break the bones of a human hand or wrist, and even with a very thick leather falconer’s gauntlet, I’ve known falconers to leave a mews (hawk house) with graphic punctures THROUGH the gauntlet into the meat of their hands and arms, just from buteos and kestrels way smaller than this eagle.

Falconers are extensively trained and dedicated wildlife conservationists, pretty much by definition, especially in the continental USA, and they make up an unspeakably important part of the overall conservation of predatory bird species. Predatory birds are an important part of every ecosystem they inhabit.

It’s definitely not exploitation of the bird, and most hawks working with falconers are hawks who absolutely would not have reached adulthood without human help: the sick, the injured, and the “runts” of the nest who don’t receive adequate resources from their own parents.
