Riassunto: This book covers all aspects of the sport of falconry and hawking with chapters on history, the birds themselves, training, housing, tools and equipment, equipment to be fitted to the bird, hoods and hooding, handling the new arrival, condition, manning and early training, flying free and getting fit, flying falcons out of the hood, flying short-wings, merlins, game hawking, moulting, imping and coping, lost hawks, hack and hacking back, dogs for hawking and making hoods, bells, bags and gloves. In addition there are two new chapters which replace and amplify the original text on health and disease and captive breeding, as well as a new section on the author's own experiences of Arab falconry practice. The author gives details of the birds most commonly used in the sport and the character and individual temperament of the birds are revealed in his own case histories. Every technique is explained with step-by-step instructions and illustrations.
In this third edition of his classic guide to training, caring for, and hunting with falcons and hawks, Phillip Glasier, an experienced teacher of falconry, continues to provide the best, most detailed information available to the beginner. In conjunction with raptor specialist Greg Simpson, he presents completely new, fully up-to-date coverage of health and disease, as well as in-depth advice on keeping birds of prey loose in an aviary. Both newcomers and those familiar with the sport will find invaluable knowledge.
