Falconry is a very specialised art where a falcon is trained to bring back its prey to the master or trainer. It becomes a means of livelihood. There is close understanding and strong bond between bird and man. The former helps to convey food to man.
Falconry is much a practise in arid and desert areas of Arab civilisation and its dominions. Now it is a dying art. Hobbyists help keep the sport alive.

In Marco Polo's travels along the silk road to China he mentioned about falconry.
