             "Fine horses and fierce eagles are the wings of the Kazakhs"  

    Berkutchy, the practice of raising a Golden Eagle to hunt, was formerly a male pursuit in the Kazakhs culture of Mongolia.  As young men migrate to cities, girls have taken up the 6000 year old tradition. Villages rely on the bond between eagle and handler to hunt fox, wolf and rabbit for food and pelts throughout the year.
