world of falconry.
An Ancient Art
The art of falconry has been around for a very long time. Falcons and humans were very close. Falcons were used for hunting wild quarry.
Not only were falcons a sign of strength, superiority, and power, but they also meant something on the dinner table.
Falconers put a
leather hood on
the falcon's head
before they were
released. Since a
falcon's eyesight is
10 times better
than ours, it could spot something it wants to fly after or catch before it is released. The falconer needs the falcon ready for whatever it needs to do, but if the falcon is distracted with something else, it can't do that.
