It's a sport like no other! Falconry demands an array of talents--yet the time spent taming and conditioning the hawk is well repaid by the sight of this beautiful bird soaring through the air. This stunningly full guide, by an experienced teacher and trainer, covers every aspect of falconry in voluminous detail. Construct a weather-proof shelter, feed your hawk the correct diet, and get health tips so you can quickly recognize if anything's awry. Carefully keyed diagrams show you how to field and clip a falcon's beak, and tend to its talons and feathers. Master hooding, setting out lures, test flights, fitness for hunting, imprinting, and working with dogs. Soon you and your falcon will be flying high!
