Originally used in hunting as a way of obtaining food, the practice of falconry has changeded over time and is now more associated with nature conservation, cultural heritage and social engagement within communities. Following their traditions and ethical principles, falconers train, fly and breed birds of prey (which can include, besides falcons, eagles, hawks, and even owls), developing a bond with them and becoming their main source of protection.
Falconry demonstrations can be awe-inspiring to witness. A demonstration can involve watching the birds in free flight, witnessing a mock hunt, or even having the bird land in your gloved hand. During wedding ceremonies, a bird of prey can even deliver the rings to the falconer!
