the dictionary of norse mythology


FALCON A bird of prey that hunts during the day. Like its relatives the hawk and the eagle, the falcon has extraordinary eyesight and powers of flight. In Norse mythology the goddess freya possessed a suit of falcon feathers that enabled her to travel wher-ever she wanted.Freya lent her suit of feathers to loki so that he might rescue idunn and again so that he might find mjollnir, the hammer see The Theft of Thor's Hammer, under thor. On another occasion, in Thor and the Giant Geirrod, Loki borrowed a fal-con suit from frigg, the wife of odin.
