Hello, everyone,

I am not a falconer, but I am here in search of literature about the sport. Could anyone recommend some canonical or formative works that helped open up the world and the demands of falconry?

Secondly, I would very much like to get in touch with local falconers in my area, hear their stories, and get some first-hand accounts of the falconer's lifestyle, the birds, the hunts, methods, routines, etc.

My goal by spring at the absolute latest is to visit a specific hunting landscape and to see a bird and a falconer at work together.

So if you have any literature suggestions, or if you are a Michigan falconer or know someone who is, let me know. I would love to learn from you.
