The 15th century Codex 2457 of the Austrian National Library of Vienna contains a German text on the taming, feeding and healing of birds of prey by an otherwise unknown author named Eberhard Hicfelt. The analysis of the ›Aucupatorium herodiorum‹ reveals that it is a fastidious compilation and translation based on eleven different sources (mostly or even all of Latin origin). Of these the following can be identified: Adelard of Bath's ›De avibus tractatus‹, ›Epistola ad Ptolomaeum‹, ›Gerardus falconarius‹, ›Grisofus medicus‹, Pseudo-Hippokrates' ›Practica avium‹, Petrus de Crescentiis's ›Ruralia commoda‹ and Adam des Aigles's ›Traité de fauconnerie‹.
