Saq’r

Falconry appeared with the emergence of civilizations and was already popular in the Middle East and Arabian Gulf region several millennia BC. In the philosophy of the region, hunting trips teach patience, endurance and self-reliance and bravery can be learned from falcons. Seen here is a Saq’r falcon resting with its leather hood on.
