      Not sure if there is a better place to put this, but I know some users have been receiving spam messages from bots on the site, and I just received one myself, from user "doris222":

      I know that being able to mark messages as spam or flag users as bots has the potential for abuse, and making way more work than necessary for our forum mods, but some method of cleaning up the spambots on the site might be nice.

      Since I do get questions time to time on my bird photos - yes, those kestrels are falconry birds. Falconry is training and hunting with a wild raptor. All three of those kestrels were wild-caught by me and trained to fly free but return to me for food, as well as to allow me to hunt with them.

      Amelia was my first kestrel. She was a very unusual bird, in that she had some sort of genetic anomaly that made her feathers look very pale. I only had her for a month, unfortunately, before she took off while we were hunting grasshoppers, and I was unable to recover her.

      Penelope was my second kestrel, caught shortly after I lost Amelia. Penny, as I called her, shows more standard female kestrel coloration, with copper and black barring on her back and wings. I had her for six months, in which time she caught several insects and a frog. I released her in the spring so that she could migrate and perhaps start a nest. I have since returned to the field I released her in and have seen kestrels there, but I have no way of knowing if she was one of them.

      Napoleon is my current kestrel. As you can see from the photo, males have slate-blue wings and orange chests, unlike the streaky copper females. I caught him in the fall, and since then have been exercising him around the house and catching bugs. Today he caught his first bird, a sparrow. I look forward to more successful hunting with him, and hopefully I will be able to release him in the spring like I did with Penelope.

      I went through my sketchbook (well, one of them) and took pictures of some of the more interesting things in it, since people always seem to want to look through it. This way you get the highlights with none of the boring academic exercises in between, haha. I've actually had this sketchbook for three years now, and it doesn't see regular usage as it's a little bit big to bring along on shorter travels.

      Anyway, to see the photos, head to this livejournal entry of mine.

      Hey.

      Just wondering if you saw that I posted a new oneshot on LJ, since you usually comment them.

      If you did and didn't feel like commenting, that's fine, just wanted to check.

      Just so you know, I got those questions submitted for the chat with Burnie and they did ask one of them (the one about what the cycle was). Ironically, I didn't get my chance at the mic as they ran out of time. XP

      I've been planning to put posting at RvBFics on delayed release, but if it means I get comments from you I will do it concurrently. ^^

      I've got two more challenge fics up at LJ. :D

      Thanks so much for your comment! I really appreciate it, since there is so little feedback in this fandom.

      I meant to finish posting it on RvBFics, but we're in the middle of moving, so I haven't had time. Sorry about that. :)
