    I really enjoyed the content of this link. It contains a short trailer to a film about Falconry called ‘Sport of Kings’. It is an extremely interesting trailer that gives a glimpse of how humans link up with falcons and dogs to form a formidable hunting partnership. There is also a brief write-up at the end that provides some information on what Falconry is and what it entails as a sport. The trailer lasts only a minute, but by the time I had finished watching it, I was convinced that I wanted to get a pet Falcon.
