all's well

And in fact he made a terrific flight yesterday. We had about 3 slips and no catches, then spotted a trio on a greenbelt on a street to the right. I had to drive in a several block circle to get down this narrow, curving backstreet, but when we finally got to the end he had a good chance to size up the situation.

Three crows in a loose flat triangle and he took the one furthest away. It got up and started flying away and up, meaning to clear a brick wall. It was almost twice as long as the usual crow flight, and I was sure he wouldn't catch it. But he pumped on and caught it beautifully. A quick U-turn and he was chowing down a full meal a few minutes later.
