Training the birds to be skilful hunters alongside human


Taming and training the birds begins at infancy, when they are flightless fledglings. Their nests are located in difficult places, forcing falconers to climb cliffs and embark on dangerous endeavours. To ensure safety, the hunters check that no parent eagles are around. Protecting their young and territory, these birds are expected to attack with vengeance when they sense a threat. Hunters also make sure to only obtain a female fledgling, as female eagles are bigger and stronger. If one fledgling is found in the nest, the hunters will leave it be with its parents.
