I am experimenting a bit with Chapter 3 in which the falcon Ain Fir reflects in first person about his life as a trained hunting falcon. I am trying to set up the relationship between the bird and the boy Rodrigo, as this will be an important relationship throughout the story to come.  I am after three distinct voices with this–the bird, the boy, Columbus. To further distinguish the changes, the boy’s chapters will be past tense, whereas Columbus’s will be present, to give them a bit more immediacy. We’ll have to see how this all works. I would really like though for Ain Fir to have a sense of superiority, almost as though he tolerates being with the boy, all the while knowing that he is free to take off whenever he likes.
