With ancient roots in Mesopotamia and Central Asia, falconry also finds 
impassioned practitioners in North America. Please join us for a talk with Tim 
Gallagher to learn more about the sport of falconry.

Falconry: An Ancient Art Lives on in America
Timothy Gallagher
Tuesday, April 15, 4:00pm
Mann Library, Room 160


At a talk presented in conjunction with Mann Library's current exhibit, writer, 
wildlife photographer, and falconer Timothy Gallagher will present a history of 
this art, reflecting on its deep history and touching in particular on its 
current practice in the U.S.

Currently, editor-in-chief of Living 
Bird<http://www.allaboutbirds.org/Page.aspx?pid=2580>, the flagship publication 
of the Cornell Laboratory of Ornithology, Gallagher has had a lifelong interest 
in wilderness exploration and falcons. He has taken part in several research 
expeditions to Greenland, Iceland, northern Canada and Alaska to study falcons, 
raptors, and other endangered species.

This talk is being presented in conjunction with Mann's exhibit "An Extreme 
Stirrer-Up of Passions: Falconry at Cornell and Beyond." Exploring the ancient, 
yet still vibrant world of falconry with gorgeous photography, fascinating 
artifacts, and items from Cornell University Library's extensive falconry 
collection, the exhibit is on display in the Mann Lobby and first floor Top 
Shelf Gallery through mid-May.

Refreshments available throughout the event. Exhibition and lecture funded by 
the Mary A. Morrison Public Education Fund and the Bondareff Family Fund for 
Mann Library.
