The scene where the falcon starts freaking out was caused by somebody upsetting it from behind. If you look closely you can see the arm of one of the crew behind the bird causing it to be upset. I believe the arm might belong to Dan Haggerty
, who is also uncredited for this film, but who worked on the film as the animal handler. He later went on to become "Grizzly Adams" in the TV series The Life and Times of Grizzly Adams
(1977). See more
