The ancient Egyptians believed that all deities assumed animal form when on Earth and the falcon became associated with the god Horus. Horus was believed to be the son of Osiris and Isis. Destined to be the protector of the reigning pharaoh, Horus would be represented in full falcon form and sometimes as a falcon headed man.
Horus was one of the earliest and most important gods of ancient Egypt. As a falcon he was a sky god and he was considered a divine child.
