Falconry Blogs

Falconry is the ancient art of training raptors (hawks and falcons) for sport. The "sport" involves training the birds to fly from the hand in pursuit of their natural prey. In the United States, falconers and the sport of falconry is rigidly controlled by regulations issued by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

Hundreds of books have been written on the subject of falconry. Given the continued worldwide popularity of falconry, it’s not surprising that a "community" of bloggers is writing about the topic. Here’s a list of 23 such blogs I have encountered in the last couple of months (there are undoubtedly many more):
