You may have noticed, in Spidersilk the novel, there was mention of the regal falcon in many aspects of the story. The plot also involves many technological devices. In our own world, falcons and tech are colliding as bird trainers are now using drones to help train their falcons to fly higher than ever before. This use of technology is both exciting and intriguing as it could change the way we train animals in the future. We may even see falcons used for rescues, just as we did in the novel.
