Artist's Description

This magnificent bird is one of the inhabitants of the Malta Falconry Centre. It is apparently very easy to train and so is a popular falconry “beginner’s bird”. It is native to much of South and Central America and the southern part of North America. The MFC takes great care in animal welfare, and apart from offering courses and educational sessions, it rescues injured birds brought in from the wild. Falconry in Malta dates back to the 13th century; the Maltese falcon was a highly prized bird. The title of the classic film “The Maltese Falcon” was based (in a roundabout way) on a historical fact. Pentax K 10D
