How to Tie the Falconer’s Knot

The Falconers Knot is used to secure a bird of prey to a perch. Actually when I say secure, the bird does have a fair amount of movement until it gets to the end of its tether. The whole idea of the falconers knot is that it can be tied with one hand, as the bird of prey usually occupies the other hand, making it difficult to use two hands to tie the knot.

  2. I’m wanting to learn how to do the falconers know using only my left hand and non-video. All I’m finding is using the right hand to make the knot. The rescue group I’m with uses the right hand as the perch not the left. I’m right handed so using the left hand and fingers is not as easy. Any help would be appreciated. I like non video instructions because I learn better by reading and doing. Do not always have a phone or computer with me.
