Falconry is a popular pastime with nobles, and a well-trained falcon is fully capable of blinding an opponent. Hunting birds are specially trained raptors that can fetch and bring back small game. Owls and eagles are included in this category. Many hunting birds are hooded to keep them calm. A falconer must wear leather or mesh gloves; otherwise, when the hunting bird lands on the arm, the falconer is injured from its talons. Hunting birds include owls, ospreys, eagles, falcons, and other similar creatures. Common names for hunting birds include Streak, Hunter, and Swoop.[1a]
