Falcons were small birds of prey, often used in hunting.[citation needed]


Falcons were a favored animal of the Mulhorandi god Anhur and the halfling god Arvoreen. They were sacred to the goddesses Milil and Red Knight as well.[3]

Moon elves had a special fondness for falcons and often kept them as pets.[4] Centaurs within the forest of Cormanthor used falcons as scouts.[citation needed] In some human lands, such as Cormyr, formal education among the aristocracy included falconry.[5] Some rangers kept falcons as animal companions.[6]
