Jack Mavrogordato lived a life immersed in falconry, both Eastern and Western. He excelled not only in his practice but in his leadership and his writing as well. Perhaps known best for A Hawk for the Bush” arguably the best thing written on shortwings since Edmund Bert. The principles he advocates in all his writings are applicable to all the raptors within the falconer’s repertoire.
