UAE falcon hospital a window into Emirati tradition

The owner of a falcon awaits with his birds of prey at the reception room of the Abu Dhabi Falcon Hospital in the Emirati capital on January 27, 2020. The Abu Dhabi facility is the world's largest falcon hospital, frequented by falconers from across the Gulf region. As well as check-ups and routine trimming of talons, it also conducts complicated surgery and offers a training programme for veterinary students from more than 40 countries to learn about avian medicine.
