Śīrṇaparṇa (शीर्णपर्ण) refers to “bare trees” (as seen in the summer season), according to the Śyainika-śāstra: a Sanskrit treatise dealing with the divisions and benefits of Hunting and Hawking, written by Rājā Rudradeva (or Candradeva) in possibly the 13th century.—Accordingly, [while discussing the treatment of hawks]: “In summer, when the air is heated by the terrible rays of the meridian sun, the bare trees (śīrṇaparṇa) cannot afford shelter [na bhānti taravaścaiva śīrṇaparṇairanāśrayāḥ]; stormy winds surcharged with dust blow on all sides; [...] then the season, like the forest fire, becomes intolerable to these birds [i.e., hawks], [...]. Therefore cooling processes should be now resorted to”.
