Barn Owls and Other Falconry

A friendly Bubo bubo eagle owl greeted me the other day, surrounded by his mates, a barn owl and a common owl. There were other birds of prey, such as falcons and hawks, all displayed at a stand run by the Associació de Falconeria de les Balears at the occasion of the Fira de Manacor, two weeks ago.

Falconry in Mallorca, and indeed in Spain, was introduced by the Moorish people some 1,000 years ago, and had its heyday in the 13th to 15th Century, after the Re-Conquista. The art of falconry is currently alive and kicking in Mallorca. You could telephone Gonzalo on 646.121.152 in case you should be interested in further information.

The photo was taken in Manacor, Mallorca, Spain. The date: September 20th, 2008. The time was 17:47:51.
