The Falcon Lady
Smallville viewers will recognize one of The Falcon Lady's birds, Thorn, from his guest appearance on the episode "Veritas." But if glimpsing a bird of prey is what they're after, locals need only look down at their own arms. That's because The Falcon Lady, Joanne, teaches workshop attendees how to handle falcons themselves, crediting her and her apprentices' nuanced philosophy with making each experience safe. "Our companions," she says, "know themselves to respected, and loved." But Joanne doesn't anthropomorphize them. Instead, she and her staff take pride in socializing the birds of prey and earning their trust. Even 3-year-olds have held small falcons at her facility because Joanne is confident in the safe, trusting relationships she forges with the animals.
