The Practice of Falconry




The practice of falconry was already well established in 1239 and this ties in with the issue of bird names and language. Semitic origin for birds of prey, as well as expressions in Maltese involving birds of prey, continues to prove that a strong bond with these birds existed for a very long time. Falconers in the Middle Ages in Malta were well paid and enjoyed several privileges.This tradition was revivedby falconers communities in the recent years.
