As you’ve probably guessed from the title of this blog, I’m the falconer’s wife. This blog is dedicated to my husband, a falconer, and those who participate in the ancient and noble art of falconry (as seen through the eyes of an observer). I’m not a falconer (yet), but my appreciation and awe for birds of prey and their relationship with man throughout history is great.
If you’ve ever been close to one of these avian creatures, you can’t help but be impressed by their raw power, intelligence and beauty. Their design is perfect in every detail and their proximity may compel you to gape in admiration.
I hope I can do this sport justice with my words and I invite others whose admiration of falconry is either a passing fancy or meets or surpasses mine to share their thoughts on this blog. This is only my perspective and yours would be greatly appreciated as well.
I hope you enjoy hearing of our adventures, whether on horseback, with our hounds, hawks, or all three.
