Robertson has two 6-month-old Aplomado falcons, Jefe, a male, and Maine Koon, a female. He took them out to fly in an open field near Cooper's Landing on Wednesday. Robertson flies his two falcons nearly every day.

Robertson has been training Jefe and Maine Koon since mid-October. Both were bred in captivity and are now being trained to hunt.
