Sparrowhawks Book Excerpt:

Flying imprint sparrowhawks is often unfairly portrayed as being overly complex and highly technical. Sparrowhawks - A Falconer's Guide aims to paint a far more informed picture, and to perhaps dispel some of the myths. Written with the beginner in mind, it is based on considerable first-hand experience of the author and a number of other respected falconers from the United Kingdom, Croatia, Ireland and Turkey who have specialized in flying sparrowhawks. By drawing comparisons with some of the most ancient trapping and training techniques of the East, and by making a connection with modern Western falconry practices, this remarkable book encapsulates the timeless beauty and joy of sparrowhawking, which crosses all cultures. Topics covered include: equipment, preparing to receive your sparrowhawk chick and imprinting; training, behaviour, quarry, entering, field craft and hawking in many different types of terrain; methodologies of captive breeding in the West; problems associated with the rehabilitation and release of wild sparrowhawks in the United Kingdom and finally, the vitally important subject of sparrowhawk health and welfare. Superbly illustrated with over 200 colour photographs.

"There aren't a lot of us. Only about 400 active license holders in California out of approximately 7,000 nationwide. About ten new apprentices start every year in California. About the same number of falconers drop out of the sport. To become a falconer you must prove to your state and to one general or master falconer, that you have the book knowledge, facilities, equipment and ambition to become a falconer. ... The book knowledge is tested in the form of your state's falconry examination and is the first and most difficult 'gate' you must pass through to become a falconer. ... The test is composed of about fifty to fifty-five questions about falconry, natural history of the birds of falconry, equipment, facilities, laws and regulations, and so on. ... This guide asks questions in the same way the states ask test questions."--P. [2]
