The peregrine falcon is one of the deadliest hunters in the sky.
This incredible raptor makes us glad we’re not a pheasant.
Or anything else that a falcon can grab.
Falconry may date as far back as 680 BC. The legendary sport of kings was originally used as a hunting method. Rescued birds are bred in captivity since falconry is seeing a rebirth of the old sport.
Many falconers use lures to create flying displays at state and county fairs. Pest control in urban areas use falcons to trim burgeoning populations of pigeons and other undesirable birds.
