in the Sky
The picture below shows you the main groups of diurnal, (day flying), birds of prey, as you may see them in the sky. If you recognise a silhouette click on the corresponding link at the bottom of the page.
on this site are given a 'Falconry Mark' (up to 5 stars) for their suitability
as a falconry bird. This takes into account such things as temperament, ease of
training/keeping, hunting ability etc and is only a guide to prospective
falconers. As with all raptors read as much as you can on the
subject, buy a video, join a good club, go on a course, talk to experienced
falconers, buy your falconry furniture/food in advance, make sure your aviary is
built correctly for the bird you wish to keep, find a reputable breeder and THEN
buy your bird.
