Welcome to Abu Dhabi, where falconers from all across the world met at the International Festival of Falconry.
Please join Paul Beecroft and his good friend, Peter Devers from the U.S., on a brief tour of the grounds. They’d like to introduce you to some of their new and dear friends, both human and feathered, starting with the beautiful bald eagle (above) and three falcons (below).
Flags and display stands of various nations.
South Korean Falconer
Thailand and Romanian Falconers
Turkish Falconer (below left) and a very young Slovakian Falconer
