hybrid, captive
Gyrfalcon X Peregrine Hybrid seen at Dorval beside the runway 24 left. This bird has a tracking device and is used by the falconer as a means of scaring away ducks and geese from the runways. The bird can soar up to and above the "ceiling" which is the base of the clouds, however with only a hand wave it will return. It was fed a bird upon return. There are also 2 hawks the falconer uses.
