Most people don't have the time or the patience to follow the art of falconry. It is a very time demanding sport.

Mrs. Mary Weston wrote this article with great information. She showed her incredible ability to have it very interesting and simple for an adult and young person to read it with joy, yet full of information and technicality for falconers who appreciate the art and falconry. Very well prepared and written.
