This is a very detailed and authoritative text which is geared toward the seasoned falconer or serious falconry enthusiast. All aspects of falconry are covered which can be a bit overwhelming. There are several sections that apply equally or directly to wild birds of prey that those whose interest does not focus on falconry would find valuable. An indispensable volume for falconers, but probably overkill for anyone whose interest in birds of prey does not centered around falconry.
