falconry

Definition from Dictionary, a free dictionary
There are two ways of being happy: We must either diminish our wants or augment our means—either may do—the result is the same and it is for each man to decide for himself and to do that which happens to be easier.
Benjamin Franklin

falconry (-)
  1. The sport of hunting by using trained birds of prey, especially falcons and hawks.
    • 1854: Henry David Thoreau, Walden, or Life in the Woods [1]
      ...looking up, I observed a very slight and graceful hawk, like a night-hawk, alternately soaring like a ripple and tumbling a rod or two over and over, showing the underside of its wings, which gleamed like a satin ribbon in the sun, or like the pearly inside of a shell. This sight reminded me of falconry and what nobleness and poetry are associated with that sport.
