1st edition, 6" x 8", softbound, 136 pages, black-and-white pictures throughout.
It is really quite amazing that the Harris' Hawk, less than a human generation ago, was previously unknown to falconers. In a very short time it has become the most-flown hawk anywhere in the world, and it would be difficult to guess how many Harris' Hawks there are in the hands of falconers-perhaps more than exist in nature! The author shares his considerable experience on the species, both in nature and in falconry. This book covers all the basics of flying this hawk.
Chapters: The Harris Hawk, Equipment, Housing, Hunting Companions, Choice of Hawk, Hooding, Training, Entering, Hunting, Diet and Molt, Common Mistakes, Accidents, In The Field and Tailpiece (Conclusion).
