FALCONS
[ Also see Birds ]

The falcon and the dove sit there together,
  And th' one of them doth prune the other's feather.
      - Michael Drayton, Noah's Flood

Say, will the falcon, stooping from above,
  Smit with her varying plumage, spare the dove?
    Admires the jay the insect's gilded wings?
      Or hears the hawk when Philomela sings?
      - Alexander Pope, Essay on Man
         (ep. III, l. 53)

On Tuesday last
  A falcon, now tow'ring in her pride of place,
    Was by a mousing owl hawked at and killed.
      - William Shakespeare, Macbeth
         (Ross at II, iv)

My falcon now is sharp and passing empty,
  And till she stoop she must not be full-gorged,
    For then she never looks upon her lure.
      - William Shakespeare,
        The Taming of the Shrew
         (Petruchio at IV, i)
