Hooded Falcon

Do not be deceived by the term 'hooded' and the soft cloth images that might spring to mind from using the word hood.
The hood is more of a shell or casing that fits snugly and completely over the eyes of the bird of prey.

Raptor research with Peter Hurst - Falconry Southeast

During this week of development for 'Hawk', actors in the company spent a morning at Quex Park Estate with falconer Peter Hurst.
Pete gave us lots of insights into hawk training and also let us just spend time observing the birds of prey. It was a valuable morning of research which fed into rehearsals that afternoon.
