Falconry is the pursuit of game by means of trained falcons or hawks; also called hawking. Falconry is a very old amusement in Europe. In the middle ages it was the favorite sport of princes and nobles. I ran into this hawker outside the town of Sandhausen, Germany. His bird had just brought down a mallard duck.
