This activity, which involves breeding and training falcons or other birds of prey to hunt preys in their natural environment, is connected with a spirit of companionship and exchange. Falconers exchange methods to train and look after the birds, the emotional ties with them, or the equipment they use. Spain is the ideal destination to watch this tradition, which promotes the creation of craft products, the preservation of species and an entertaining show.
