Things you didn’t know – words derived from Falconry
by Shawn King
I know practically nothing about falconry – although I can see the appeal of the sport; it’s sort of like having a flying dog. Despite my lack of knowledge on training raptors, I am interested in how words are derived and falconry, has sourced several words and expressions in common use today.
I saw a Falconer work once back home in Nova Scotia. Amazing and beautiful animals.
