Man and falcon have hunted together since the early part of the 7th century BC in Assyria. There are references to Falconry in China as early as 680 BC and Japan in 206 BC. Falcons are members of the Raptor family - Birds of Prey. They have eyes so large they can't move them and hence turn their heads to view their world. (as you can see in some of the poses below). Their eyesight is two to three times better than ours and some can see a grasshopper from the other side of a football field. These beauties with their watchful eyes would make a wonderful wall hanging when grouped together or use one of more to accent clothing, bags and pictures.
A great site to learn more about Falcons (especially the Merlin - my favorite Falcon) is The Merlin Falcon Foundation. They have helped me a lot in my *raptor* watching.
