Falconry, known more popularly as hawking, is the sport of training birds of prey—mainly hawks, falcons, eagles and buzzards—to hunt small animals. The article goes on to describe the skill of falconry in detail, including training the birds, the equipment used, the preparation and conduct of the hunt itself, and a little about the origins of the sport on Lythia. The last of the six pages contains a handy glossary of terms used in falconry.
