Of Alieto. Cap. 3.
*AS the Glose saith Super Deutro. 14. Alietus & a Fawcon is all one bird, which coueteth praye, and is right bolde and hardie, and assaileth birdes & foules, that be much more greater than they, & réeseth on them, and smiteth with breast and with féete. Some men meane, that Alietus is a little bird, and taketh other small birds. Thereof speaketh Auctour Aurora and saith.
*Obtinet exiguas Alietus corpore vires. Sunt & aues minimae, praeda cibusque suus.
That is to saye, Alietus hath small vertues and strength of body: and small birds be his meate and his praye.
And some men meane, that this bird assaileth onelye feeble Birdes and vn∣mightie: and héereby it seemeth, that Alietus and a little Sparrow Hawke is all one, that is called a Musket in French, or els it is called, the Sper∣hawke.
