Behind this hawk, a covey of quail fidgets in the yellow crate. They will be released as training devices for the birds of prey. Also for sale in this shop were jesses, gloves, feathered lures for training, radio tracking devices and nets - everything you need to get into falconry. All you need is money, lots and lots of money. Some of these birds were untrained and relatively cheap, selling at about $1,000, but those that were trained and had earned a reputation for killing the most desirable types of game were commanding four times that amount.
