Today we we're invited to set up in Old East Village at The Pickle Social Lounge. Huge Thanks for everyone involved with this event today, including those behind the scene. We both loved the accessibility of the venue.
SaltHaven was going to be making an appearance with a surprise guest between 11 to 1pm. Only 2 hours to wait...
Today we met the very handsome boy, Chaukar. A beautiful Lagger Falcon & Ambassador with SaltHaven Wildlife Rehabilitation and Education Centre
From SaltHavens website, Here's the story of Chaukar...

"a species native to East India and as such is not releasable here in Ontario, where Salthaven is located. Laggar falcons are listed as near threatened species in their native range due to pesticide use, habitat destruction, and trapping intended for the related Saker falcon. Chaukar escaped his first owner, a falconer, with his leash still attached to him. When he landed in a tree, the leash wrapped around a branch and held him captive long enough that he was severely dehydrated and emaciated by the time he arrived at Salthaven needing help. His condition was touch and go for a whilee. The little but mighty Chaukar eventually pulled through, and after training he now bears the title of Salthaven Wildlife Ambassador."
On February 26 The Pickle Social Club posted this on Facebook...
