Rarely seen despite their huge size. Great Falcons resided in remoter and higher reaches of the Forest of Mirkwood.(Actually most resided in the Emyn-nu-Fuin, the "Mountains of Mirkwood.") They were almost untameable, probably due to the difficulty of hooding and confining such a huge bird, even as an eyas (fledgling). Great Falcons were surprisingly maneuverable for such large birds, as was necessary for any winged beast that would live in the dense forest. Their light build made them unable to carry more than around 70 lbs, so they made poor mounts.
