    Falconry is an ancient sport, dating back thousands of years, suspected to be as old as BC. Throughout history, birds of prey have been mentioned, documented, and even idolized across cultures of the Middle East, before making their way into Western civilization. Contact.

    The aim of this book is not to include all research that has ever been done on falcons, but to highlight those issues that are really working out in practice. It includes 17 chapters ranging from history of falcon medicine to different diseases up to first aid and intensive care medicine.   Falconry is a hunting sport, but one in which the actual taking of game is secondary to the nuance of flight and the subtle interaction of human handler and winged hunter.
