Recommended Reading List

This is just a short beginner’s list. There are many wonderful falconry publications available. Please bear in mind when reading books by authors from foreign countries, or books that are 25 years old or older, that statements about getting started in falconry may be inaccurate in the United States at present.

Most of these are available from any of the falconry equipment vendors or from the authors’ websites.
