The ancient and noble art of falconry lives on. In living, it meets modern flight technology. Though I suspect it also meets modern sissy philosophy and they don't use the hawks to hunt. The hell is the point of a predator you don't use to kill things? How awesome would it be to hunt from a chair a thousand feet in the air?
It looks like La Wik's entry on falconry might be as satisfying as its entry on tea.
Check out the nifty etymology box at the bottom of falconry.
The tea one is especially good if you want to repeat Seth's Willat effect experiments.
