Cobb library holding falconry class Saturday because why not 

Obviously, metro Atlanta is into falcons.

But who wouldn’t like to call themselves a falconier? Even the word is amazing. It sounds like “falcon” and “fancier” had a baby word.

On Saturday, you can begin your falconry quest at the Smyrna Library, 100 Village Green Circle SE.
