United Arab Emirates (UAE). Dubai. The Falcon & Heritage Sports Centre is a place full of shop selling falcons and all equipment needed for falconry. It has also a museum dedicated to Falconry which has been practised in the UAE for centuries and continues to play an integral part in Arab desert life. On the wall, a drawing of falconers and hawks hunting in the desert. Falcons are birds of prey in the genus Falco, which includes about 40 species. Adult falcons have thin, tapered wings, which enable them to fly at high speed and change direction rapidly. Additionally, they have keen eyesight for detecting food at a distance or during flight, strong feet equipped with talons for grasping or killing prey, and powerful, curved beaks for tearing flesh. Falcons kill with their beaks, using a "tooth" on the side of their beaks. The United Arab Emirates (UAE) is a country in Western Asia at the northeast end of the Arabian Peninsula. 16.02.2020  © 2020 Didier Ruef
