It is clear from the frequent references to dogs and hawks in the charters that hunting and falconry were keenly pursued by the kings and their retinues.
The bittern in the days of falconry was strictly preserved, and afforded excellent sport.
He formed a menagerie of strange animals, and wrote a treatise on falconry (De arte venandi cum avibus) which is remarkable for its accurate observation of the habits of birds.'
This sight reminded me of falconry and what nobleness and poetry are associated with that sport.
Falconry was long a pastime of the Moslem landlords.
