The art of falconry requires time, dedication and resources. As a result, only a few aficionados keep this thousand-year-old tradition alive. The origins of falconry are very old, so it is an artform that has evolved over the years. It is possible that it was first discovered in China, as there are many references in Chinese texts to the practice of falconry before the Common Era (BCE/BC).
