Mini Hawkbox 小型の鷹箱

With my mews finished and awaiting inspection next Saturday and having finished school for the summer I jumped right in and got to work on another project (I've always got something I want to build/make/invent for falconry!). Today I made a mini hawkbox. I've got an awesome large box already from my friend in Japan, and it will get plenty of use someday, but it's a little oversized for a tiny kestrel so I put my creativity to work and came up with this little number:

小屋の工事が終わって,又学校が夏休憩に入ったから次は何作ろうかなと思いました(いつも何かの道具の作り方を考えている!)。今日は小型の鷹箱を作ってみました。内村さんから本当に素敵な大型箱は買いましたけど今年アメチョウを飛ばすからちょっと大きい過ぎる。だからこういう小型箱を作ってみました。


I had no dimensions to go by for a small box like this so I just guessed. It's 16"x10"x12" (LxWxH) and I think it will do the job of transporting the kestrel to and from hunting fields just fine.
大きさはどのぐらいがいいか分からなかったので適当で頑張ってみました。結局40cmX25cmX30cmになって,まぁアメチョウにとってはいいでしょう。

There's still 3 more months before trapping season so plenty of time to make more stuff!
鷹を手に入れるのはまた3ヶ月程あるからまだまだ色んな物を作ってみます!

I know what you mean! I have my hawkbox planned out, I just need to make it.

I also have various sizes of hoods to make for the kestrel I will trap in the fall.

I have a move and an inspection to take place.

I like your box though.

Matt-

I should've looked on your site! I'd been looking for your kestrel book but it was packed away in a box due to a recent move...of course I found it last night though! Re-reading it now for the upcoming season.

Thanks for stopping by!
