Symbolising the force and the courage

Showcasing the beauty of falcon bird at a traditional show in Dubai.
Falcons are known for their fine hunting instincts and devastating speed. The bird played a vital role in the lives of bedouin Arabs as providers of food. The birds, in the modern-day Gulf Arab region as a link with the population's nomadic desert past, are widely kept and trained- but for sport rather than out of necessity.
The birds are specially bred for the sport and regarded with great respect. Falconry is particularly favoured by the royal families in the UAE.
