Alexander the falconer is happily showing off his goshawk. He’s been using it to hunt in the woods to get some rabbits for the cook. His hawk is a more practical bird for hunting in the woods thanks to having a shorter wingspan. The practicalities of Sir Eustace’s falcon are compared to the forester’s hawk.
The falconer would train the hunting birds of the lord. His time would be spent making sure the birds were used to humans, as they would revert to being wild if they didn’t have much contact. They would teach hawks to fly to take food from their hands to encourage them to return after hunting other birds.
